2015 Schwartz Forum: Communicating Climate Change
Speaking at the Dorothy Schwartz Forum on Art, Science, and the Humanities on October 24, 2015, Thomas F. Tracy, Philipps Professor of Religious Studies at Bates College, discusses moral challenges in confronting climate change. Professor Tracy’s research focuses on issues in philosophy of religion and theology, and to a lesser degree, on topics in applied ethics, particularly medical ethics and the morality of warfare. His published work has dealt with philosophical questions raised by the classical conception of God in Western religions. He written on the problem of evil, on the concept of God as an agent who acts in the events of history, and on the relation between these classical issues in philosophical theology and contemporary developments in the natural sciences.
