Sally Weintrobe, psychoanalyst and author, discusses issues she presents in her book, Psychological Roots of the Climate Crisis, which tells the story of a fundamental fight between a caring and an uncaring imagination. Her book helps us to recognise the uncaring imagination in politics, in culture — and also in ourselves. Sally Weintrobe argues that achieving the shift to greater care requires us to stop colluding with the rigid psychological mindset largely responsible for the climate crisis. People in this mindset believe that they are entitled to have the lion’s share and that they can ‘rearrange’ reality with magical omnipotent thinking whenever reality limits these felt entitlements. Weintrobe shares her experience as a psychoanalyst, from her professional life that has been dedicated to helping people to face difficult truths.
