The debate on the limits of justice and obligations to future generations

Cover Page


This paper analyses the problem of our obligations to future generations in the perspective of the notion that the application of the principles of justice has its contextual limits (bounds). The analysis reveals considerable flaws in the conception of limits of justice itself and in the contract-based approach to the fair treatment of future people that is closely associated with it.
