Annonceur : Professor Robert Carter, Department of Philosophy, also of Sir Georges Williams [University]. Robert Carter : The title of the lectures, or at least one of the main themes of the lectures, joyous austerity, seems to me to be particularly well chosen, and for that reason, extraordinaraly disturbing and difficult to grapple with. Austerity is necessary without question if we are to survive joyous. What on earth, and I take it we are concerned with the earth, are we to mean by joyous? I’m all for it if I can only, in this discussion, indicate some of the things that I think are required by joyous and find some semblance of agreement perhaps among those of us here. What the lectures have done, I think, is to present the problem and I think our society is becoming aware of the problem of spoilage, waste, population explosion. What I think professor Dansereau is aware of, and that society is not so aware of, is what the recognition of the problem entailes, namely that something must be given up in order for something to be gained. Then the question : what is it that would be given up in order to accomplish what, in order to gain what?
