April 17 and 24, 2021 – Though the world is now in a dreadful state with warnings of impending collapse, humanity and our fellow creatures could still be looking forward to a long and glorious future: at least a million years of peace and personal fulfilment with abundant and diverse wildlife. But to achieve this we need to re-think everything we do and take for granted from first principles—those of morality and ecology, both rooted in the all-but forgotten discipline of metaphysics which embraces both science and religion. The re-think and re-structuring amount to nothing less than a Renaissance—more far-reaching than the Renaissance that ended the European Middle Ages. Many millions of individuals and organizations worldwide are already showing the way. What’s needed now is coordination, underpinned by a coherent philosophy.
Colin Tudge, biologist, writer and broadcaster, discusses the whole thesis with expert guests, Andrew Fellows, Denise Walton, Ian Rappel and Ruby Reed.
