Autorentext

Christopher Groves' work focuses on how people and institutions negotiate and deal with an intrinsically uncertain future. He has published widely on intergenerational ethics, the regulation of emerging technologies, and the sociology and politics of risk and uncertainty. He is co-author with Barbara Adam of Future Matters: Action, Knowledge, Ethics (2007).



Klappentext

Our capacity to reshape the future has never been more powerful. Yet our ability to foresee the consequences of what we do has not kept pace. Is the idea that we have responsibilities to future generations therefore meaningful? This book argues that it is, with the aid of a unique reading of the care ethics tradition.
