With the mounting threat of climate change, a mass extinction of species, and increasingly volatile geopolitical relations, the Earth community has entered a most critical phase of the Planetary Era. Beginning with a survey of major theories of globalization, the seminar proceeds to consider the contributions of such contemporary “big picture” thinkers as Edgar Morin, Jeremy Rifkin, and Peter Sloterdijk, as well as insights from Joanna Macy, Naomi Klein, and various indigenous leaders. The main goal of the seminar is to cultivate a transdisciplinary engagement with the phenomenon of globalization and to participate in the creation of a Wisdom culture worthy of the Planetary Era.
