Sea Change: Cultural Evolution

“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.)

  • Global Citizens in an Evolving World
