Once more, with feeling!

Back at that very same Nero in Manchester. Again it is one hour until the conference starts and again Marcel has written a thought-provoking paper, this time on “Zero-growth libertarianism: Population Growth and environmental sustainability”. Reminds me of a paper in the Journal of Applied Philosophy by Thomas Young who asks if overconsumption and procreation are morally equivalent, a question he, fully in line with the Neo-Malthusian paradigm, also answers in the affirmative.

Other highlights this time will be Andrew Dobson’s text on William Ophuls or “Political Theory for a Closed World”. Clearly, the stage is set :-)
