Introduction -- Ethics -- How was the project chosen? -- Are the goals of the project worth reaching? -- Are the means used to reach the goals of the project appropriate? -- Does the project conflict with projects other individuals or groups are pursuing? -- Does the project conflict with other projects the same individual or group is pursuing? -- Is the project self-defeating? -- Ethics and environment -- What is the place in which the project will unfold? -- How might the project change the place and its broader context? -- How much can we know about how the project will unfold in this place? -- Metropolitan growth -- How should we characterize the built environment of the United States? -- What are the dynamics that shape the built environment? -- The ethics of metropolitan growth -- Is this a good place to live? (well-being) -- Who gets to benefit from this place and who does not? (justice) -- How long can this place last? (sustainability) -- Who should make decisions about this place? (legitimacy) -- Using the framework -- Reveal hidden complexity in ethical judgments -- Identify points of agreement and disagreement -- Focus deliberation -- Search for new possibilities -- The limits of ethics -- To what extent can people act responsibly? -- To what extent can people be held responsible for their actions?
