We Have Never Been Revolutionary

November 29, 2016, 7:00 PM

Free

What if science studies theorist Bruno Latour is right that thinking of ourselves as “revolutionary” is one of the central constitutive myths of modernity? What if, as he asserts, “we have never been modern?” This talk with Keith Peterson, associate professor of philosophy, explores the basis of Latour’s anti-revolutionary claim and considers some responses to these questions and their implications. Peterson’s areas of interest include philosophies of nature and environment, value theory, philosophical anthropology, and continental philosophy. He teaches courses in all these areas, and is currently completing a monograph on environmental philosophy titled “A World not Made for Us: Topics in Critical Environmental Philosophy.”
