The Commonwealth of Life: Economics for a Flourishing Earth, Second Edition


Manufacturer: Black Rose Books

Product Information

"In the First Edition of this remarkable book, Peter G. Brown, through a series of careful arguments, identified three challenges that lay ahead of us: the first was to come up with an adequate account of our minimal obligations to each other, and the rest of the natural order; the second was to redefine and reshape the institutions of economics, government, and civil society to reflect those obligations; and the third was to re-conceptualize and redirect relations between nations so as to fosters those institutions and discharge those obligations.
"In this his Second Edition, he revisits and expands on those original ideas and draws some new, and innovative, conclusions that will redirect what we do and give substance and direction to the institutions that must be adopted if life is to flourish. Finding our historical attitude of 'full-human-use' toward the environment unsatisfactory, Brown offers an alternative, namely, an 'all-species-use'. What he calls 'the commonwealth of life', and the acceptance of this reasoning has some very important implications for all life that share this planet."

Peter G. Brown. Black Rose Books, 2008.
