Ideas developed by LSE Philosophers Luc Bovens and Roman Frigg encouraged the Dutch Government to adopt novel approaches to sustainability and predicting climate change.
Luc Bovens is Professor of Philosophy and Head of the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method. He developed his ideas on environmental sustainability through an innovative exploration of the much-acclaimed nudge theory.
Roman Frigg is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science (CPNSS). As part of the LSE Managing Severe Uncertainty Project, he investigates the limitations of probabilities in high resolution climate predictions used to provide evidence for policy decisions.
