The folks over at BigThink recently conducted an interview with Harrison Ford about his work at Harvard scientist E.O. Wilson’s Biodiversity Foundation. The organization works to preserve biological diversity in the living environment through innovative business and educational strategies.

There are a great range of questions here, with everything from “Is Indiana Jones an environmentalist hero?” to “How has your love of nature influenced your acting?”. Here’s his response to the latter:

“I think the basis of acting is empathy. Knowing how other people feel. Certainly, one of the important judgments you can make about a person is how they fit into their environment, into the world that they live in. Specifically, whether they’re a positive force or a negative force.”

“I’ve always loved the quiet and the solace of nature. I’ve been fascinated by the complication of nature. In a way, I found that although I was raised without a formal religion, I found an ethical reality in nature — and the preservation of it. And I think that informs me in every way.”

One of the best aspects of these videos is how raw and thoughtful Ford’s answers are. There isn’t any interviewer — just Harrison and a camera. Check out the answer to the Indiana Jones question after the jump. For the rest of the great interview segments, check out the BigThink site here.
