Why Worry About Future Generations?

Samuel Scheffler

  • An original and thought-provoking exploration of an urgent question that concerns us all
  • Likely to change the way the reader thinks about herself in relation to the future of humanity
  • Short, lively, and engaging - accessible to readers beyond philosophy
  • Builds on the themes of the author's widely-praised book Death and the Afterlife (2013)
  • Scheffler's view has significant implications for practical isses like climate change
