On Nature


11/09/2023 (Monday)

8.00 - 9.30 pm

The Adelaide

To be presented by Bob Clarke

We use the words ‘Nature’ and ‘Natural’ in so many contradictory ways that their meaning is obscure and their use is obfuscatory! Words like ‘Natural’ and ‘Unnatural’ reveal our attitudes towards aspects of our world, but they are so ill-defined that it is best to avoid them when we need to make policy decisions, especially those relating to Ecological Sustainability, The Biosphere and Biodiversity.

Technology permitting, this will be an illustrated talk.
