Ethics & Social Justice

Using concepts from science and the contemplative traditions, Arthur Zajonc explores the ethical implications of abstract and reductionist views, and how moral imagination and agency can be cultivated.

    David Cayley hosts the program “Ideas” for the Canadian Broadcast Company. Here he interviews Arthur Zajonc on the contemporary significance of Goethe’s ideas on science, at the heart of which stands the conviction that the practice of close attention changes the human mind.
