“Sea Change” is Jim’s term for a period of rapidly accelerating cultural evolution. Our dominant human values move slowly but steadily towards a closer fit with reality. We gradually begin to realize the illegitimacy of racism, patriarchy, homophobia, ecological abuse, and injustice, and to embrace progressive countervailing values. Once in a great while, that slow trickle of change becomes a torrent. Is our age a time of Sea Change? (What follows is a listing of sample future lectures.)


  • Thriving in the Crosscurrent—Life in a Time of Sea Change

  • Global Citizens in an Evolving World

  • After the Pandemic: What the World Might Be like

  • The Anti-Evolutionary Eddies: Destructive Resistance to Change

  • Ten Reasons for Global Hope
