Justice, Society and Nature by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low

Book Description

Justice, Society and Nature examines the moral response which the world must make to the ecological crisis if there is to be real change in the global society and economy to favour ecological integrity. From its base in the idea of the self, through principles of political justice, to the justice of global institutions, the authors trace the layered structure of the philosophy of justice as it applies to environmental and ecological issues. Philosophical ideas are treated in a straightforward and easily understandable way with reference to practical examples. Moving straight to the heart of pressing international and national concerns, the authors explore the issues of environment and development, fair treatment of humans and non-humans, and the justice of the social and economic systems which affect the health and safety of the peoples of the world. Current grass-roots concerns such as the environmental justice movement in the USA, and the ethics of the international regulation of development are examined in depth. The authors take debates beyond mere complaint about the injustice of the world economy, and suggest what should now be done to do justice to nature.

Books By Author Assoc Prof Nicholas Low

Transforming Urban Transport by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Transforming Urban Transport, Hardback (November 2012)

Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the dilemma faced by a world wedded to mobility: the danger of continuing along the fossil-fuelled path and the real paucity of viable technological alternatives which can be deployed in time.

Institutional Barriers to Sustainable Transport by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Institutional Barriers to Sustainable Transport, Hardback (September 2012)

Through an examination of transport planning in Australia, this book challenges conventional wisdom by showing, through original research, how 'car dependence' is as much an institutional as a technical phenomenon. It brings sophisticated political-institutional analysis to what has traditionally been the domain of engineering and technology.

Govering for the Environment by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Govering for the Environment, Hardback (January 2001)

Explores one dimension of the value-knowledge system needed in any movement towards humane governance for the planet: the ecological sustainability and integrity of the Earth's environment. Contributors explore various ethical issues that must inform future global regulation of the environment.

Global Ethics and Environment by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Global Ethics and Environment, Hardback (September 1999)

This collection stimulates debate and provides an excellent resource for wide-ranging case study material and solid academic context.
