2017 Conference Theme: “Consumption, Sustainability and the Ends of Earth”

Arguably, climate change and the imminent possibility of ecological collapse are the greatest problems faced by contemporary humanity. Climate change is the sine qua non of all contemporary problems: if it is not avoided, solutions to our many other problems matter little. They will have no place to occur. Relatedly, consumerism is quickly becoming a worldwide ethos driving this race to headlong destruction. Prophecies now abound from within and beyond philosophy about the end(s) of Earth.

We are interested in papers that address the constellation of problems that arise from concerns about ecological degradation, destruction and collapse. Such concerns include but are not limited to: climate change, consumerism, population growth, longevity, extinction, cross-species care, reproduction, genetic engineering, technology, market freedom, social policy, and alternative conceptions of the good life. The society welcomes approaches to these issues from all philosophical angles, approaches and methods.
