Climate Ethics

Essential Readings

Stephen M. Gardiner, Simon Caney, Dale Jamieson, and Henry Shue

  • The book addresses a key global problem from a perspective that is widely acknowledged as vital but underexplored in both public and academic discussions.
  • Such a collection is a valuable resource at a time when concern about climate change is accelerating and the search for substantial political progress is reaching a critical point.
  • The editors are all pioneers in their areas and have each achieved international recognition.
  • The book contains a range of intellectual disciplines, including philosophy, political science, and economics.
  • It does not set out to advance a particular point of view, but rather to give a sense of the core debates by representing divergent considerations and voices.
