The things we do today may make life worse for future generations. But why should we care what happens to people who won’t be born until after all of us are gone?

Samuel Scheffler, Professor of Philosophy at New York University, will discuss how we are more invested in the fate of our descendants than we may realize, and that we have more reasons to care about what happens to them than we commonly acknowledge.
