Our paper bears on the issue of the possibility conditions for another relationship towards nature which seems to be required if one wants to ensure a future to mankind on earth. In other words we both share the alarmists’ views concerning the future of earth through climate change and other issues. We assume them as correct without discussing here.

Poltier’s part is negative; claiming that liberalism is; from the point of view of this issue; a dead end; Hess’ part will inquire the resources for designing another ethics through a critical discussion of Jonas’ and Norton’s contributions.
