Episode 26 - Idioms of Normality hosted by Dr. Paul H. Mason

Can we go back to everyday normality, and what is normal nowadays? This is episode 26 of Idioms of Normality. A series hosted by Dr. Paul Mason for #futureframedTV

In this episode, Paul Mason interviews Robert Lepenies from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research. Is he a philosopher? Is he an economist? Is he a political scientist? Robert describes himself as an undisciplined academic. His answer to the question “what is normal?” is unique and insightful! He says we need to think about three things to answer this question: (1) luxury, (2) hope, and (3) power. The reasons behind this answer could very well help you to question normality and disrupt social and environmental imbalances. Tune in!
