Belonging to the Universe

Warren Anderson has lived in Jacksonville since he was a child, other than attending Wake Forest University and the University of Florida School of Law. He served as a state prosecutor for five years; since the early 1980s, his law practice has focused on civil litigation, including pro-environmental cases. Warren has been in leadership roles in the Sierra Club, Riverkeeper, The Timucuan Trail Parks Foundation, and the Public Trust Environmental Legal Institute where his emphasis is on protecting and enhancing the “special places” of Northeast Florida. Warren and his wife Diana have four sons and live in Neptune Beach, Florida.

1) Why did you apply to give a Talk at TEDxJacksonville?

 Doug Coleman suggested I apply.

2) What is your favorite TED Talk?   Hank Coxe.

3) What does (un)knowing mean to you?    H

ubris and Humility -- excitement about being able to know and understand matters which are of ultimate concern, yet at the same time realizing there is impenetrable mystery.

4) What do you wish the world (or the city of Jacksonville) could (un)know?  

That there can be unity in diversity, that we have common ancestors of the land we walk on every day -- the ancient Native Americans who lived here thousands of years before European contact in 1562 -- we belong to something bigger than our little selves.
