FEATURED: Climate Change: An Existential Threat
When people contend that climate change presents an existential threat, they usually mean that it has the potential to remove human species from the planet or lead to an irrevocable collapse of human civilization. In this lecture, Dr. Oksala will explore a related, but nonetheless distinct philosophical meaning of an existential threat: climate change can be understood as an existential threat also in the sense that it demolishes the supports for a meaningful life. Register Here
