Being Human in the Anthropocene with Matthew Goodwin

June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 6:45 pm

The Anthropocene is the name scientists have proposed for the geological epoch that we are currently in, when humans have become a significant driving force shaping Earth’s climate, ecosystems, and biodiversity. We may now be on the cusp of a revolution in computing and robotics in an era of artificial intelligence that raises a question: if machines can replace us, then what should humans do? In this presentation we will discuss what it means to be human in a time when the world increasingly reflects to us our own creations and impacts.

This program is cohosted by Copper Queen Library.

About the speaker:

Matthew has a Ph.D. in Philosophy and has taught environmental ethics, media ethics, and technology and human values at Northern Arizona University, Coconino Community College, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Matthew recently participated in a National Endowment for the Humanities summer seminar on extending Aldo Leopold’s “Land Ethic.” He is co-founder of Sedona Philosophy, which offers guided hikes and retreats in Sedona and northern Arizona.
