Optimism about optimism

Optimisme / pessimisme
Philosopher Dr Hanno Sauer explains why there is no need to be pessimistic about the future. Do we live in times of moral progress?

Many people believe things are bad and will likely get worse. Philosopher Dr Hanno Sauer (UU) explains why we’re naturally inclined to be pessimistic, and what we can do about it. He’s optimistic himself: there is moral progress in the world, and we’re likely to see more of it in the future. We merely need to allow it to happen.
