Description

Philosopher Philip Cafaro (Colorado State University) has published a glowing review of Pharmacy/CEHV Postdoctoral Scholar Trevor Hedberg's recently published book, The Environmental Impact of Overpopulation: The Ethics of Procreation.

Writing for the interdisciplinary, international effort The Overpopulation Project, Cafaro hails the book as a "valuable addition" to the literature on population ethics and one which should be welcomed by environmentalists more broadly. He praises Hedberg's moral argument for reducing both human population size and consumption per person, which he summarizes in the review, for its "great clarity and ingenuity." 

Review the full review at The Overpopulation Project website: "The moral case for population reduction" (July 13, 2021).
