Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to an online discussion with Thomas Nail, whose philosophy of movement has resulted in 11 books in the past 10 years and whose Theory of the Earth is the first book of philosophical geology in over 100 years.
This discussion, which is part of the “Anti-Racism, Anti-Colonialism and Climate Change” series, will be held Thursday, Feb. 9, from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
These online discussions are meant to be serious, open to newcomers, warm, and thoughtful. The idea is to bring imaginative and probing thought to bear on the topic areas of the series, emphasizing what the humanities and social sciences can bring to how we think about global warming, and linking some of the most important social justice topics that affect Northeast Ohio to environmental change. Think of the series not as applied work, nor as policy advocacy, but as addressing upstream assumptions and uncovering wider context.
