Introduction by Salvatore Engel-Di Mauro Foreword by Ariel Salleh This book takes as its object of critique one of the best known and most influential arguments in contemporary applied ethics which is biologist Garrett Hardin’s case for “lifeboat ethics.” John Clark analyzes the moral dimensions of world hunger, foreign aid, immigration policy, and population growth. Clark critiques the “lifeboat ethics” as a way to explore in depth both the common and the commons. It is about the truth we hold in common, and about certain falsehoods that we hold in common. This book also contains Garrett Hardin’s 1974 essay "Living on a Lifeboat"

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.
