Sustainability Ethics: 5 Questions seeks to identify the key ethical concepts of sustainability while clarifying the points of interest that allow scholars to engage in debate. 

“Through this book we seek to improve theoretical and policy discussions surrounding the contested meanings of sustainability,” says Evan Selinger, associate professor of philosophy. “We hope that it helps citizens and professionals alike better grasp the complexity involved in guiding people and institutions toward sustainable outcomes.”

The volume, co-edited by Wade Robison, the Hale Professor of Ethics, and Ryne Raffaelle, director of the National Center for Photovoltaics, features scholars in philosophy, political science and ethics who answer questions surrounding the development and use of sustainability.
