Abstract and Keywords

If we are to emerge from the process of growing up with an adult conception of justice, it will be a conception of our place and of our due, alongside a conception of what other people are due, within a community that has a logic of its own. That logic will be described by economics (among other social sciences) and by ecology. Realistic possibilities are implications of those logics. Adult views about ethics and about justice will be disciplined by those logics.

Keywords: distributive justice, Scottish enlightenment, trade, cooperation, Neanderthals, Bernard Williams, environmental conflict, transaction cost, external cost, compromise
