2013 (English)In: Philosophy and Practice of Sustainable Development / [ed] Krystyna Najder-Stefaniak, Warszava: Zaklad Filozofii WNS SGGW , 2013, p. 22-51Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The notion of sustainable development has advanced theory and practice beyond the traditional preservation and conseration framing of environmental issues. However sustainability is a contested concept with a wide variety of possible meanings. We argue that a workable notion of sustainability must be pluralistic. But acknowledging pluralism creates its own set of challenges for both decision-making and policy implementation. A "reasonable interpretation" of sustainable development that is pluralistic without succumbing to mere subjectivism or relativism, can provide answers to these difficulties. However it can do so only in the context of participatory democratic decision-making. The goal is to reach compromise, but not capitulation, that is grounded in a dialogic engagement with pluralism.
