Abstract

Abstract:

Climate change challenges the harm-based justification of intergenerational responsibilities. Alternatively, this article provides a virtue-based account grounded in Confucian ethics. According to the virtue of Shengsheng, the intergenerational responsibility is justified in terms of enabling future generations to cultivate their innate virtue in a ceaseless life-generating natural world.
