In light of the ongoing environmental crisis and climate change, many have suggested that we now live in the age of the Anthropocene, an age in which the geology and ecosystem of the natural world are significantly shaped by human activities and technology. How should human beings interpret their place in this changing world? How should we as human beings understand our relation to ‘nature’? In this lecture, Professor John Milbank, a world-renowned theologian and philosopher, will consider how the idea of creatio ex nihilo (creation out of nothing) found in Judaism, Christianity and Islam can help us rethink our role and responsibilities as human beings in relation to the ecological crisis. If it is us human beings who have put the world into a crisis, it is only us who can save it.
