Everything Series: Why should I pay for your Covid vaccine? Public goods and government action in an era of individualism

October 18, 2022
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Zoom

Why do governments use tax revenues to pay for vaccines, emergency services, and parks? When can we leave it up to the market to provide what we need, and when might government involvement be justified? This talk will explore the economic concept of "public goods", which dates back to Adam Smith. We'll also examine some of the limitations of the standard Western concept of public goods, and see how Christian, Indigenous and other perspectives may provide alternative approaches.

Keynote Speaker

As a teacher, Dr. Gerda Kits’ goal is to help students use economic ideas to understand real-life issues. She teaches courses in the Politics, History & Economics program, the Environmental Studies program, and the Commerce program. Her research currently focuses on three interrelated areas: decolonizing the economics curriculum, the ongoing economic legacy of settler-colonialism, and the Alberta oilsands.

Everything Series: Living within our planetary boundaries for our common good

November 07, 2022
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The King's University

Our planet reached a remarkable cross-over point in 2020 where the mass of material created by humans exceeded for the first time the dry biomass on the entire planet. As the Anthropocene Epoch progresses, humans have shown the remarkable capacity to transform our Earth system processes to accommodate both human needs and wants. But the scale and scope of human activity now threaten our interconnected planetary life support systems.

We will use work done at the King’s Centre for Visualization in Science on the Planetary Boundaries sustainability framework to explore the nature of the challenge to Earth system processes, focusing particularly on changes to Earth’s climate. What hopeful steps can we take as a learning community to link our efforts with other communities to fulfill our University vision to help build a more just, humane, and sustainable world?

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Peter Mahaffy is an internationally known climate educator, chemistry professor, and director of King’s Center for Visualization in Science which he founded with Dr. Brian Martin 17 years ago. KCVS now serves about a half-million students, educators, and the public from 100 countries each year. His current research and professional activity is focused on the interplay between systems thinking, sustainability, and science.

Everything Series: Who is my neighbour? The problem of polarization, and the need for political wisdom

November 28, 2022
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The King's University

Some recent events in our country suggest that we are perhaps not immune to the forces of political polarization that have not only crippled the political processes south of the border, but torn the social fabric asunder.  Polarization is not only disagreement, it is a particular way of structuring and enforcing disagreement that makes shared moral conversations all but impossible.

In this presentation I will provide an analysis of polarization and the ways in which it drives us ever further from our neighbours, and put forth “wisdom” (“the fear of the Lord”) as a description of the self-questioning necessary to hearing and taking seriously the voice of our “others,” itself the condition of possibility of a truly civil society.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Jeffery Dudiak is a professor of Philosophy at The King's University. His research interests include Continental Philosophy of Religion and Ethics, Philosophical Anthropology, and Philosophical Pneumatology.
