Morality, goodness and love: A rhetoric for resource management

Ethics, Place and Environment 3 (2):155 – 172 (2000)
Resource development takes place through the transformation of social institutions. The moral dimension is of crucial importance in the evolution of associated management regimes. More than just a code of ethics, moralities are predicated on what is understood to be 'the good'. Recognition of the good requires a rhetoric beyond those of power and interest. This paper proposes a rhetoric of love. Within this conception of morality, the management of human relationships becomes understood as an unfolding cycle of choice among tragic choices and management of the non-human environment is accomplished through the realisation of the gift relationship.
