Episode 117: Interview with Dale Jamieson, Professor of Environmental Studies and Philosophy, New York University on environmental justice.
Dale discusses his recent thinking on the metaphysical challenges of climate change –the way a rapidly changing world unmoored from the traditional sources of meaning in our lives. He also explores the way that climate change interacts with our political institutions, with their inherent short-termism–and distinguishes between what he sees as the broad values of capitalism, when he was growing up, and what he calls today’s crony capitalism. At the heart of this discussion, Dale highlights the fundamental challenges that any person faces in life today, wherever they live, are: how should I live? How do I how do I go forward?
