Event Details

The TD Speaker Series presents Ronald Wright: The Traps of Progress

Drawing on his bestselling book and Massey Lectures, A Short History of Progress, Ronald Wright will discuss how our modern environmental crisis is rooted in patterns of progress and disaster that are as old as civilization itself.  What he calls the 'experiment' of civilization has reached such a pace and scale that it threatens to destroy the natural world on which it depends.  By understanding previous mistakes and successes, we may --given luck and wisdom --chart a wiser course into the future.

Historian, novelist, and essayist Ronald Wright is the award-winning author of nine books of nonfiction and fiction published in 16 languages and more than 40 countries. Much of his work explores the relationships between past and present, peoples and power, other cultures and our own.
