Podcast for Social Research, Ep. 38: Night of Philosophy and Ideas–We Are Not All in This Together

This episode of the podcast features Ajay Singh Chaudhary’s midnight lecture from Night of Philosophy and Ideas 2020: “We Are Not All in This Together: Climate, Politics, and Conflict.” One of the most familiar ways  in which people talk about climate change and its politics is as a universal, positioning anthropogenic climate change as an abstract, “common enemy.” In this talk, Ajay tells a different story. From remarkably similar understandings of “the facts” of climate change arise sharply divergent interests, political formations, and conflicts. After a brief introduction in which Ajay and Rebecca Ariel Porte talk about the talk’s larger project, audio from the event begins. Night of Philosophy and Ideas is co-sponsored by Brooklyn Public Library and the French Embassy.
