Public Goods

What do we owe each other in terms of flourishing? Does the social, institutional and cultural environment matter for flourishing, and should it be equal for all? read about this here.

On Technology affordances and human flourishing which opened up a very interesting debate on integrating ethics into action theory

For why we should support public goods see Why the intrinsic value of public goods matters

On justice and urban land use see On the just distribution of land use rights (With Levine-Schnur R.)
