Mythos and Logos: A Dark Mountain Talk

co-founded the Dark Mountain Project in 2009, and was one of the project’s directors until stepping back in 2017. His books include the Man Booker-longlisted novel The Wake and his collection of Dark Mountain essays Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist.

This a recording of a talk I gave last week at University College Falmouth. The 35-minute talk was given nearly three years on from the launch of the project, so it was a good opportunity for me to try and zoom in on what we’ve achieved and where we hope to go next, and to focus in on some of the key ideas we work with. I hope it will act as a good introduction to Dark Mountain’s aims and its history, particularly for anyone who is new to what we do.
