This straightforward book is the only one of its kind to join the literature of environmental ethics to the literature of applied ethics—to describe a life lived in harmony with itself, with society, and with the natural world. Its three chapters focus on morality, technology, and stewardship while encouraging readers to explore a single virtue that will encompass all the requirements of the ethical life and save the environment at the same time. For humans who want to live good and fulfilling lives without compromising the ability of the other species on the planet to do the same.

From the Back Cover:

Lisa H. Newton, in Ethics and Sustainability, brings together the imperatives to live a good life in our own community and generation, and to preserve the natural environment for generations to come. She shows how a personal ethic of virtue must include a commitment to environmental preservation, how exciting new developments in technology make it truly possible to live and develop our communities sustainably on the earth, and how the traditional virtue of simplicity unifies environmental sensitivity with a focused and gracious life. In the simple life, "sustainable development" is an attainable goal.

Ethics and Sustainability: Sustainable Development and the Moral Life is the sixth book in the series, Basic Ethics in Action, edited by Michael Boylan, which is a major new undertaking by Prentice Hall covering several areas, including business ethics, environmental ethics, medical ethics, and social and political ethics.

About the Author:

Lisa H. Newton is Director of the Program in Applied Ethics, Fairfield University, Fairfield, Connecticut.
