Ethics of a Planetary Sustainability

Titleimage: Planetary Sustainability

The concept of sustainability is widely acknowledged as a political guideline. Economic, ecological, social and cultural aspects of sustainability are already under discussion. The pressing problem of space debris and current space mining efforts demand that the discussion becomes a broader one about “planetary sustainability”, including the space surrounding Earth. To date, planetary sustainability has mainly been used with reference to Earth only and it will be extended here, elaborating on a similar NASA initiative. The problem shall be assessed making use of the philosophical and theological approach of a constructive-critical realism.
