Details of the Next “Inner West Council Philosophy Talk"

Title: “A Crisis of Expertise? Science, Environment and Democracy”

Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Matthew Kearnes (UNSW)

A central problem for democracies is the accommodation of competing forms of authority: how to square scientific expertise, on the one hand, and popular representation, on the other. This discussion explores the ways in which the authority of expertise is increasingly questioned by both populist and progressive social and political movements. Focusing on environmental policy, it explores how we might establish more plural and diverse forms of democratic participation that extend beyond the formal processes of democratic representation.
