Kathleen Dean Moore

Great Tide Rising: Towards Clarity and Moral Courage in a Time of Planetary Change 


Thursday, February 11, 2016
The Arts Center
7:00 p.m.


Even as seas rise against the shores, another great tide is beginning to rise -- a tide of outrage against the pillage of the planet, a tide of commitment to justice and human rights, a swelling affirmation of moral responsibility to the future and to Earth's fullness of life. Kathleen Dean Moore is a distinguished professor emerita of philosophy at OSU and co-founder and Senior Fellow of the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word. An environmental philosopher, Moore writes about moral, spiritual, and cultural relationships to the natural world. Her previous book was the award-winning edited volume, Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril
