Abstract

Kant’s later work on moral philosophy contains some thoughts about a political union of the nations in a postcolonial situation. These ideas relate to the discussion about global governance of climate change after the Paris accord of 2015: Since power is unevenly distributed, the distribution of claims must be “provisional”, he said. But what about the ethics of climate change? In particular: What are the implications of postcolonialism on the ethics of climate change? Which are the impediments and the pitfalls of social transformation that is necessary to mitigate disastrous climate change?

All are welcome to attend!
