If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jenni Lecky-Thompson.

This talk addresses two questions about sustainability. Is it possible to maintain or improve well-being without increasing consumption? Is it possible to extend the time-horizon of individuals and institutions so that the interests of future persons can be better made to count in current choices? The paper contrasts Epicurean and Aristotelian answers to the questions and suggests that an Aristotelian answer is owed to both.

This talk is part of the Philosophy Events series.
