The Yachats Academy of Arts and Sciences is privileged to present Dr. Kathleen Dean Moore, Distinguished Professor, Senior Fellow, Spring Creek Project and Environmental Philosopher at Oregon State University. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, November 6, 6:30 PM at the Yachats Commons, Yachats.
Dr. Moore is an Environmental Philosopher and has written extensively about moral, spiritual and cultural relationships to the natural world.
Her recent award-winning edited volume, “Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril,” addresses the question, “Do we have a moral obligation to the future to leave a world as rich in possibilities as the world we inherited?”
Her current work applies ecological concepts to the challenges of making a powerful moral response to our environmental emergencies: If we truly understand that we live in complete dependence on an Earth that is interconnected, interdependent, finite and resilient, could we imagine a better set of ideas about our moral responsibilities to one another, to the Earth and to the future?
Dr. Moore’s topic will be “Global Warming – Between Hell and High Water” There is no admission charge, but a $5.00 donation is requested to cover publicity expenses. For more information: GoYachats.com or call 541-961-6695.
