This year's public lectures are given by philosophers who share a sense of the need for a profound ethical and practical transformation of our civilisation. The lectures contemplate too what will occur if such a desirable transformation does not occur, and what we should do to prepare for that possibility. In the view of many of us, our civilisation WILL be transformed. Either profoundly for the better; or by making way for something completely different, through a process of some kind of collapse. If philosophers aren't willing to contemplate that stark choice, who will be? So thinking about the future begins here.
