On October 12, Mary Evelyn Tucker, Senior Lecturer and Senior Research Scholar at the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Yale University, will share an Emmy Award winning film Journey of the Universe, and moderate a discussion with Chinese scholars and practitioners about how the cosmological and ecological perspective in Journey of the Universe is compatible with the Confucian cosmology of the unity of Heaven, Earth, and human.
The discussion will show how issues of sustainability are enhanced when joined to the humanities and environment alethics. An interdisciplinary synthesis of science, policy, and traditional cultural values deepens China's promotion of an ecological civilization.
The language of the event will be Chinese and English with simultaneous translation.
