Summary
  • "This book contributes to the discussion about obligations to the future generations by arguing that a principle of justice according to which we must share the environmental resources of the planet with future generations must be considered to be part of the just basic structure of society. The argument is based on a close study of Rawls' theory of justice and particularly of its treatment of the future generations issue. But the author claims that the affirmation of a principle of justice towards future generations must be accompanied by the attempt to articulate motives that shape a concern with the fate of future persons in the first place."--Jacket
