Can people alive now have duties to future generations, the unborn millions? If so, what do we owe them? What does justice mean in an intergenerational context, both between people who will coexist at some point, and between generations that will never overlap? In this book, Axel Gosseries provides a forensic examination of these issues, comparing and analyzing various views about what we owe our successors. He discusses links between justice and sustainability, and looks at the implications of the fact that our successors preferences are heavily influenced by what we will actually leave them and by the education they receive. He also points to how these theoretical considerations apply to real-life issues, ranging from pension reform and Brexit to biodiversity and the climate crisis. He ends by outlining how intergenerational considerations may translate into institutional design. Anyone grappling with the dilemmas of our obligations to the future, from students and scholars to policy makers and active citizens, will find this an invaluable theoretical and practical guide to this moral and political minefield.

There are few more important issues than intergenerational justice. Axel Gosseriess wonderfully clear book provides an invaluable map of this complex terrain, which ranges from the duties we have toward our successors to mitigate climate change, to the puzzles raised by appeals to intergenerational fairness when dealing with a pandemic, and to the fact that we make decisions for the sake of people who do not yet exist and thus do not have a say over what we do on their behalf. A must read. Cecile Fabre, All Souls College, University of Oxford A much-needed book written with care and lucidity. Gosseries demystifies philosophical thinking about intergenerational justice, showing its importance for next steps in the fight against injustice. A compelling read for anyone who cares about what we owe to future people. Catriona McKinnon, University of Exeter Using very clear language capable of simplifying such a complex topic, [Axel Gosseries] manages to make this book on future generations and justice accessible both to those with a philosophical background and to those without. The book is praiseworthy in more respects than I could manage to convey with a review Zeitschrift fr Ethik und Moralphilosophie Axel Gosseries takes stock of the intergenerational justice research with mastery, precision and clarity, also pointing to future research directions A major analytical rigour is combined with writing smoothness that makes for pleasant reading. I think anyone interested in intergenerational justice can benefit significantly from this book. Fausto Corvino, Notizie di Politeia
