What role can imagination play in our efforts to achieve a sustainable world?

Kathleen Dean Moore, philosopher and nature writer

What can I aspire to? What vision of the good can I create? How can I use my moral imagination to put myself inside the hearts and minds of other people and understand how we might go forward together? What is an honorable harvest? These are a handful of the pointed questions asked by philosopher and nature writer Kathleen Dean Moore as she considers the vital role of imagination in counteracting the corporate ethics of regulation and legal harm dominating today’s public discourses on environment impacts.
