It’s all about recovering wisdom and prudence as virtues. To succeed in doing this, it is my intuition that we need to hear more women’s voices. From the denial standpoint, we can keep the notion of openness. A wrong way to learn to deal with limits is to see limits everywhere!!! Or else to think that they are hidden and we must find them out. The future is intrinsically open – philosophers will say “contingent”, as opposed to “necessary”. In a sense, the catastrophist viewpoint can be seen as the (ill-defined) transposition into time of the limitation of space, or the (still ill-defined) transposition in the world of the limits of our individual lives.

He wanted a displacement activity, a punch-ball, something like the ways in which baboons hit harmless passers-by and humans break china when they can’t reach the real object of their wrath. He suggested campaigns which seemed to him quite harmless, for instance mining work, It clearly had not struck him that mining itself might be destructive. And, more generally, the idea that ‘nature’ might not actually be a punch-ball but a vulnerable system on which humans were totally dependent clearly never occurred to him.

Like the rest of us, Weinberg finds the point of his own life in his current occupations, not in an unimaginably distant future. But his words also imply that those data do have a point and a meaning, even if the universe as a whole does not. That point or meaning clearly doesn’t lie in something that follows after them. It lies in the pattern of connections that makes sense of them. There is a real paradox here that affects the current exclusive glorification of science. Can this occupation itself be so valuable if the subjects that it studies are themselves valueless?
