Nathan Sears had begun a strikingly ambitious intellectual project of reimagining international relations and world order, almost from the ground up.
Nathan saw that we were in a new era of human history, an era of existential risk. We face threats of global civilisation collapse, possibly even human extinction, of our own making. These anthropogenic risks include nuclear weapons, biological weapons—especially new engineered pandemics—environmental risks such as climate change and risks from emerging technologies, such as artificial general intelligence (AGI).
