Talks

As a member of Philosophers for Sustainability I am advocating radical action against climate change. Skype or Zoom talks are, unfortunately, still frowned upon. It is my hope that the coronavirus epidemic will make our field more accepting of this practice. Not only to fight climate change, but also to help the disadvantaged in academia.
