“What does it mean to bring the fate of the Earth into daily politics?”, ICCG Lecture by Bruno Latour
The present backlash in ecological politics comes from an almost total disconnect between the size and extension in space and time of the issues and the institution of politics in charge of representing them to the eyes of those in charge of making decisions. There is thus a great interest in devising instruments able to represent and make accessible to the senses the issues at hand. The great novelty of such an extension of our sensibility is that they should come from arts as well as from science thus extending the definition of aesthetics.
On September 14, 2012, the International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG) – a joint initiative of FEEM and Fondazione Giorgio Cini- will host a lecture entitled “What does it mean to bring the fate of the Earth into daily politics?” by Bruno Latour (Professor at Sciences Po Paris), one of the most important philosopher and anthropologist of science and technology.
The working language of the lecture will be English.
