Re-post – #Climate Change and the Human Mind- interview with Robert J Lifton

Readers of a certain vintage may recall Robert J. Lifton. He’s a psychiatrist who came to prominence in the 1960s with studies of war and its impact on the human mind.

Well, he’s now 91, and has written a book about climate change and what he calls the ‘climate swerve’. There’s some interesting stuff in an interview he has done with American journalist Diane Toomey. You can read that interview here.

There’s interesting stuff about fragmentary awareness, formed awareness, geoengineering and so on.

One Response to Re-post – #Climate Change and the Human Mind- interview with Robert J Lifton

  1. Sam Darby says:

    I thought the ideas of Robert Clifton reasonable, in the sense of reason, and something that many would already be aware of in our general thoughts. However, it is encouraging to see the ideas in print. It gave me the feeling of solidarity and hopefulness.
