Lives well-lived’ in a time of transition
*“Where’s the world heading?” “How should we live?” “What work should we
do?” “How can we resource ourselves and each other?*

In December 2017, Sterling College hosted a two-day symposium
by the posthumous publication of Dr. David Fleming’s extraordinary books, *Lean
Logic: A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive it
and its sister publication, *Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and
Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy

Building on the success of that event, join Post Carbon Institute Senior

As the market economy continues to crumble under the weight of its own
impossible need for perpetual growth, we should admit that for all its
destructiveness, we will miss its essential simplicity, the comforts it
delivers to many and the freedoms it underwrites.  And as capitalism’s
former largesse continues to shrink away, that future is becoming daily
reality for ever more of us.

Now is the time to repair or replace the atrophied social and ecological

"I refer to Surviving the Future as my Bible, in that it brings me solace
and helps me to understand the world and my place in it.

I look through its passages and dog-eared pages and it explains to me why
I’m thinking this way; why I feel this way. It’s loose, accessible and

central to what I believe is necessary."
