Nearly thirty years old, this book is still, unfortunately, a must-read. The threat of nuclear war is very real and no one explores its consequences better than Schell. ( )

Of course, today we are EMPHASIZING climate disruption, and this had been modeled and predicted before. Reflecting analytically about the issues of ecological ethics are not entirely different - STRUCTURALLY - from reflecting analytically about ethical issues in the practice of the professions, nor in social values that may be deemed 'unique' (like health, autonomy, freedom for self-realization, etc.). The work of ethical analysis may remain before us. ( )
