Introduction by Salvatore Engel-Di Mauro Foreword by Ariel Salleh

This book takes as its object of critique one of the best known and most influential arguments in contemporary applied ethics which is biologist Garrett Hardin’s case for “lifeboat ethics.” John Clark analyzes the moral dimensions of world hunger, foreign aid, immigration policy, and population growth. Clark critiques the “lifeboat ethics” as a way to explore in depth both the common and the commons.  It is about the truth we hold in common, and about certain falsehoods that we hold in common.

This book also contains Garrett Hardin’s 1974 essay "Living on a Lifeboat"
