THE GOOD ANCESTOR How to Think Long-Term in a Short-Term World

by | Read by Joe Jameson

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Joe Jameson narrates this impressive work of humanistic philosophy with the seriousness, clarity, and style that it merits. His English accent and educated tone amplify the listening experience of this excursion into the idea of how one can be a "good ancestor." First posed by American scientist Jonas Salk, this question launches Krznaric's treatise on the kinds of decisions--individual, communal, global--that must be made now when instant gratification rules and the climate crisis looms large. Packed with thoughtful suggestions and inspiring stories of people like youthful environmental activist Greta Thunberg and case histories in countries from Iceland to China, this audiobook proposes sweeping changes in how people and governments behave. The author asks all of us to readjust our thinking to the concept of "the long now." A.D.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
