Abstract

How can we live in harmony with nature? How do we stop global warming, associated climate change and the destruction of ecosystems? How can we eliminate poverty, provide security and create sufficiency for all the people of the earth? How do we restore an ethic of care for people and for the earth? In short, how can we put human and planetary well being at the centre of all our decision-making? Enough – philosophy and practice -- applies insights from flourishing ecosystems and from moral thinking to these big philosophical questions about how we should live. Given the crises of ecology and social justice that we currently face, the need for a new worldview is as crucial as new technology. We are all born with the capacity for enough; everybody has a part to play in the creation of a culture of enough, as a way to understand the world and live in it.
