Springfield College Department of Humanities and Social Sciences Virtual Colloquium

 

On Thursday, Oct. 1, the Springfield College Department of Humanities and Social Sciences hosted a Virtual Colloquium for the campus community to enjoy.

Springfield College Assistant Professor of Philosophy Bob Gruber, PhD, led a discussion titled, "The Ethics of Collective Action."

Presentation Description - Each of us cares about making the world better. But, are we morally obligated to act sustainably when our individual actions won’t make a difference? For example, are we morally obligated to drive less even if each of our own personal greenhouse gas emissions are nearly negligible?

Following the formal presentation, attendees were invited to participate in a question and answer segment.
