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. The papers were written with the purpose of enriching public debate.
The authors were brought together at a conference on 16 February 2018. For videos and further details, please see the dedicated event page.
