2019 Human Development Conference

(part of a series)

Engaging with Empathy: a preferential option for the poor in development The poor, according to Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach, consist of individuals who are deprived of basic freedoms such as education, political power, and other capabilities that allow individuals to achieve full lives that they have reason to value. This approach broadens the definition of poverty beyond traditional terms of financial power to recognize a multitude of “unfreedoms” which hinder upward movement in society. Historically, marginalized individuals most affected by policy changes are often ignored in the decision-making process in the development arena.

Lecture: Christopher Thompson, Integral Ecology and the Promise of Green Thomism

-

Location: Lecture – Andrews Auditorium, Geddes Hall

Is this a radical innovation? Or can we discern an intellectual patrimony at the heart of the discussion? In this lecture, Christopher Thompson invites us to reflect more deeply on the elements of ecological concern and consider the intellectual tradition inspired by St. Thomas Aquinas as a resource and guide going forward. “Green Thomism,” Thompson proposes, opens a path toward a renewed engagement with the Thomistic tradition as well as its contribution to contemporary ecological concern. …
