We would like to invite you to our next virtual colloquium on December 13th at 13:00 (German time).
Dr. Korbinian Rüger will examine the topic Longtermism and Planetary Health.
Longtermism is the idea that in many decision situations, what matters most is how our decisions affect the very long-run future and that improving the very long-run future is a key moral priority. In this talk, Dr. Rüger will introduce Longtermism, raise potential objections, and draw connections to central debates regarding climate change and the future of our planet.
Dr. Rüger is a research associate at the Chair of Practical Philosophy and Ethics at LMU since October 1, 2020 and his research focuses on normative ethics and political philosophy.
He holds a DPhil (Ph.D.) in Philosophy from Oxford University. Previously he was a visiting scholar at Princeton University. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy and Economics from the University of Bayreuth and a M.Sc. in Philosophy from the London School of Economics.
