NSU Live: The Department of History and Philosophy (DHP) of North South University (NSU) organised a seminar on the Philosophical Challenges of Climate Change on Monday.

Dr Samuel JM Kahn, associate professor of Philosophy at Indiana-Purdue University, USA, was the key speaker in the seminar held at NSU in the capital, says a press release.

Dr Samuel highlighted the need to do something to control climate change, but also noted the philosophical challenges that come with this issue.

He discussed three major challenges-- the causal impotence objection, the nonidentity problem, and the distribution problem.

Through examining these challenges and their proposed solutions, he aimed to help the audience understand their obligations in the face of anthropogenic climate change.

The seminar ended with a question and answer session where participants got the opportunity to interact with the key speaker and have their queries answered.

Dr Abdur Rob Khan, Dean of the Arts and Humanities School of NSU, and Dr Emdadul Haq, chairman of the Department of History and Philosophy, thanked Dr Samuel for sharing his insights and making the seminar a success.

Students and faculty members from various departments of NSU attended the seminar.
