What Kind of Future Will We Inherit?

Over the years, with great contribution of my students and research associates, I have done a review of the literature of psychology, ethics, ecology, climatology and other areas of study which consider what direction our world is going and what kind of future our children will inherit. My previous work focused on the nature of good and evil, with concern especially for goodness, through which we have considered the application of good to achieve a better world (The Altruistic Personality, 1988; Toward a Caring Society, 1995; Do Unto Others, 2003; The Nature of Good and Evil, 2011). My previous books concerned altruism, kindness, empathy, and moral responsibility for diverse others. In this book I will concentrate on the areas of greatest concern to scholars and myself regarding our future as a species.
