ClimateLecture #2: Ethics and Climate Change

Event

Starts on
24.01.20

18:00 — 20:00

BBAW, Berlin

Event access: Public

Following the successful launch of the event series "KlimaLectures" on the subject of microplastics, Die Junge Akademie invites to the second "KlimaLecture" on the subject of ethics and climate change at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities on Friday, January 24, 2020.

Humanity is currently emitting greenhouse gases to an extent that causes global warming. Their consequences are likely to violate the moral rights of many people. That is undeniably unfair. But how quickly and to what extent should global warming be limited? And how many greenhouse gases may humans release into the atmosphere in the future? Answers to this question are currently controversial. Some civil society actors are calling for drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years. On the other hand, some climate economists consider it fair if these emissions continue to rise into the middle of the century. One reason for this controversy lies in differing views on how we should act under uncertainty.

The climate ethicist Dr. Eugen Pissarskoi will reflect on 24.01.20 on how climate policy recommendations should be justified in the light of the existing uncertainties. Pissarskoi studied philosophy and economics at the Universities of Mannheim and the Free University of Berlin, where he obtained his doctorate with a thesis on climate ethics. He worked for many years at the Berlin "Institute for Ecological Economic Research". Since 2017, he has been conducting research at the International Centre for Ethics in the Sciences and Humanities at the University of Tübingen, where he is currently coordinating a research project dealing with the equitable design of a global bioeconomy.

The event is open to everyone interested and free of charge. Please use the following link to register by 22 January 2020: www.anmeldung-klimalecture.diejungeakademie.de

    • Asymmetrie und Reziprozität in der Moralphilosophie

      Kolloquium „A/Symmetrie — Interdisziplinäre Perspektiven“

      Emmanuel Levinas ist in der Philosophie bekannt dafür, dass er die Moral ausgehend von der Begegnung mit dem anderen Menschen als asymmetrisches Verhältnis beschreibt. In ihrem Vortrag wird Eva Buddeberg zeigen, warum Levinas die Grunderfahrung der Moral überhaupt als asymmetrisch kennzeichnet, bevor sie dann erläutern wird, warum die hier festgestellte Asymmetrie nicht der Forderung nach Gleichheit bzw. Reziprozität entgegensteht, sondern auf einer anderen Ebene zu verorten ist.
