摘要:Essentially a meditation on our relationship with the natural world, the talk shows how our idea of beauty grew out of that relationship and why it matters so much today. It draws on the writing of many well-known thinkers, but David builds on these with his own thoughts and ideas about where beauty came from and its role in the creative process. The story begins at the inception of Western culture in caves and then follows the rational and romantic cycles of the past 2500 years. He then goes on to include different paradigms from Polynesian and Australian Aboriginal cultures. These reflections are made more meaningful by the inclusion of poetic interludes resulting from David’s many, often solo, times spent in the wilderness, rounding up with a moving coda in Antarctica.

This talk is aimed at those with an interest in the creative process, and at people with a love of nature who are concerned about our abuse of the environment. The blend of science and art contains positive messages for the future, emphasising the vital role that beauty can play. It is not a sentimental look back at better bygone days, but a contemporary take on the human condition, given by someone who cares deeply, and who lives by these beliefs in his business and at play.

“Beauty is a fundamental expression of our humanity, of who we are, and if we deny beauty we deny our humanity . . . and we deny our future.”
