Prominent Buddhist scholar Donald Swearer posits that the future requires a radical shift toward living in recognition of the interdependence of all life forms and the consequent ethic of communality and a lifestyle of moderation or 'enoughness' that flows from that recognition, which he calls 'an ecology of human flourishing'. In this volume, Swearer has assembled world-class thinkers to explore and imagine several dimensions of an ecology of human flourishing: economic, sociological, religious, ethical, environmental, historical, and literary. The essays of this title address how notions of human flourishing, quality of life, and common good have been constructed and, in the contemporary world, how they are illuminated or are challenged by issues of distributive justice, poverty and economic inequality, global health, and environmental sustainability. With contributors ranging from ecoactivist Bill McKibben and medical anthropologist Arthur Kleinman to transformative theologian Sallie McFague and Malaysian critic of global injustice Chandra Muzzafar, the book provides ethical and religious aspirations to remake the world in the midst of the contradictions, injustices, and problems of our daily lives and today's global crises.
