Sufficiency, Liberal Societies and Environmental Policy in the Face of Planetary Boundaries
Jan 2016 – Overview & framework, Other papers
This paper suggests that sufficiency should amend the notion of liberal society. The classic vision of liberal societies has been based on the core values of individual freedom, the no-harm principle and social justice together with the related virtues of courage, prudence and justice. By adding sufficiency, the fourth core value of temperance is introduced.
