Whilst psychoanalysts such as Harold Searles had drawn attention to the vital significance of our (often destructive) relations to the nonhuman environment, Sally Weintrobe was the first to situate this specifically in the context of the escalating climate emergency and she now chairs The International Psychoanalytic Association’s Committee on Climate Change. She has produced two books on this subject, the latest the ‘Psychological Roots of the Climate Crisis: Neoliberal Exceptionalism and the Culture of Uncare’ having just recently been published.
Sally will share some of her thinking, such as the culture of uncare, the ecological imaginary and the nature and role of exceptionalism in both self and society, but in this conversation Sally will also reflect upon how her engagement with these issues has arisen in the course of her own life history, growing up in apartheid South Africa, and later developing her practice as a psychoanalyst in the UK.
