Revealing flaws in both 'green' and market-based approaches to environmental policy, O'Neill develops an Aristotolian account of well-being. He examines the implications for wider issues involving markets, civil society and politics.Human and non-human well-being is central to environmental concern. In this book John O'Neill develops an Aristotelian account of welfare which reveals that concern for the good of non-humans and future generations are components of our own well-being. He shows that welfare and liberal justifications of market-based approaches to environmental policy fail, and examines the implications this has had for debates about the market, civil society and politics in modern society.
