Is it fair to leave the next generation a public debt? Is it defensible to impose legal rules on them through constitutional constraints? From combating climate change to ensuring proper funding for future pensions, concerns about ethics between generations are everywhere. In this volume sixteen philosophers explore intergenerational justice. Part One examines the ways in which various theories of justice look at the matter. These include libertarian, Rawlsian, sufficientarian, contractarian, communitarian, Marxian and reciprocity-based approaches. In Part Two, the authors look more specifically at issues relevant to each of these theories, such as motivation to act fairly towards future generations, the population dimension, the formation of preferences through education and how they impact on our intergenerational obligations, and whether it is fair to rely on constitutional devices.

Review:

Review from previous edition a comprehensive work that will be useful to all scholars with an interest in modern population ethics ... the book constitutes a very significant contribution to an overall topic which - due to the fact that it is both theoretically challenging and practically highly pertinent - seems destined to constitute a continuously expanding sub-field of ethics. (Economics and Philosophy)

a stimulating book ... the essays collected offer a high-quality analysis of the various problems underpinning intergenerational justice. (Antoine Verret-Hamelin, Recension DOuvraçe)
