At this moment we only have one home. In the perspective of Carl Sagan’s “pale blue dot” we reflect on both the consequences of our actions and the potentials of our abilities in relation to their effects on environment and our place in it.
There are many orientations toward our relationship with the environment: Religious and Corporate Dominionists find a world of spoils ripe for the taking, there are those who are ambivalent, and there are those that are actively engaged with a mutual role of participant and proactive steward. The Humanist philosophy calls us to work in cooperation, using our capacities of reason, intelligence, creativity, and compassion to limit our destructive influence today, repair prior damage, and preserve the planet for future generations.
We will be discussing the Humanist perspective on environmental stewardship and the argument against dominionism and ambivalence.
