about this item

As the world moves forward on a new path set by the Paris Agreement, the philosophical debate on climate change finds itself in a precarious position. Up until this time philosophy has remained ineffective in engaging the political process of building the global climate effort. The limitation lies in reflecting about justice without a public philosophy. To overcome this predicament, Global Climate Change and the Pursuit of a Public Philosophy proposes a political turn. Three conceptions of public philosophy are explored, respectively from Rawls, Sandel, and Habermas, with the insights gained and specially tuned for a global public sphere, the book takes the reader to an exploration of an emerging global public life in the transition to carbon-neutral and climate resilient societies.
