Climate Change, Efficiency and Future Generations

Lecture Series "Reason, Reflection & Responsibility"

Thinkers in Philosophy & Public Policy

Our precarious times call for a rethinking and renewal of the shared underpinnings of an open, diverse, andinclusive democratic society. To support this process, the Institute of Philosophy is offering a lecture series with leading thinkers who are confronting the challenges and chances that we are facing in all dimensions of life. The idea of this series is to develop a culture of reason, reflection, and responsibility by bringing fundamental global debates to the heart of the campus. The series is about connecting philosophical enquiry to pragmatic action.

Speaker: Christine Straehle (University of Ottawa)

Organizer: Prof. Dr. Matthew Braham (Professur für Praktische Philosophie, Universität Hamburg)

Place: Hauptgebäude, Hörsaal B, Edmund-Siemers-Allee 1
