SRSE Discussion with Dr. Carl Mitcham: Social Responsibility in a Changing Climate


Where: Marquez Hall 322

When: Tuesday, February 4th

Time: 5:30pm

Dinner will be provided! 

The United States and China have become the two biggest carbon emitters in the world and thus the two largest contributors to climate mutation. But they have quite different perspectives on their social responsibilities in this regard. The U.S. argues that both should commit to reductions and that the U.S. will not reduce if China does not. China argues that the U.S., as the larger per capita and historical emitter, should reduce first. We will explore these and related disagreements and their implications for the exercise of social responsibility in engineering.

Carl Mitcham is an Emeritus Professor of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences has been visiting China since 1992 and now teaches regularly during the spring semester at Renmin University of China. He will be suggesting that Chinese engineers may be acting with more social responsibility than American engineers. Dr. Mitcham is one of the most influential philosophers of engineering worldwide.
