To explore the Meaning and Moral Framing of Sustainable Prosperity, we have commissioned six papers by leading international philosophers and social theorists, each adopting a distinctive and divergent perspective on the topic. The authors of these papers are (in order): Melissa Lane, Princeton University; Roger Scruton; John Bellamy Foster, University of Oregon; Ingrid Robeyns, Utrecht University; Ruth Levitas, Bristol University and John O’Neill, Manchester.
These connect questions of human flourishing with those of economic and environmental policy, seeking the normative foundations and possible institutions that might underpin sustainable prosperity in future. Papers are published once a month over the first half of 2017. They are written with the purpose of enriching public debate, and will each receive responses from members of the CUSP team as they appear. Finally, the authors will be brought together at a conference to explore the meaning and moral framing of sustainable prosperity later this year in London.
