【预选课通知】复杂系统研究:制度、经济与环境

编辑: 时间:2021年04月06日 访问次数:0

【课程介绍】

“人类世”时期的资源使用、人口增长和环境压力是一个相互联系且复杂的系统。在这种系统视角下,人类该如何反思自身的价值观、制度设计、经济发展和环境保护行为?人类已经面临因改变自然而带来的巨大生存威胁——如果人类能够及时认识到自然的脆弱性并及时采取行动,或许还能抓住重启与自然共处的机会。本课程的目的就是在新时代背景下讨论人类社会的复杂性,通过制度设计塑造价值追求、提高人类集体行动能力,从而重新实现人类与自然界的健康稳定发展。

The course is about institutions, economics and environment in the current epoch of the Anthropocene. It will explain how to rethink human values, institutions, economics and the environment in an epoch which is characterized by increasing resource use, populations, environmental pressures, interconnectedness and complexity. In that new historical context humans on earth are facing their greatest challenges and existential threats from how they have transformed nature, but also opportunities for renewal and stewardship of spaceship earth, recognizing the vulnerability of human and non-human life. In that new historical context, the challenge is to scale up social complexity and enhance collective intelligence by transforming the emerging values into institutions, and governance for the collective public good of planetary health.
