    Logic of Choice or Logic of Care? Uncertainty, Technological Mediation and Responsible Innovation.Christopher Groves - 2015 - NanoEthics 9 (3):321-333.
    The regulation of innovation reflects a specific imaginary of the role of governance that makes it external to the field it governs. It is argued that this decision and rule-based view of regulation is insufficient to deal with the inescapable uncertainties that are produced by innovation. In particular, relying on risk-based knowledge as the basis of regulation fails to deal sufficiently both with the problem that innovation ensures the future will not resemble the past, and with the problem that the (...)

    Nanotechnology, Contingency and Finitude.Christopher Groves - 2009 - NanoEthics 3 (1):1-16.
    It is argued that the social significance of nanotechnologies should be understood in terms of the politics and ethics of uncertainty. This means that the uncertainties surrounding the present and future development of nanotechnologies should not be interpreted, first and foremost, in terms of concepts of risk. It is argued that risk, as a way of managing uncertain futures, has a particular historical genealogy, and as such implies a specific politics and ethics. It is proposed, instead, that the concepts of (...)

    Future Ethics: Risk, Care and Non-Reciprocal Responsibility.Christopher Groves - 2009 - Journal of Global Ethics 5 (1):17 – 31.
    As the number of intrinsically unknowable technologically produced risks global society faces continues to grow, it is evident that the question of our responsibilities towards future people is of urgent importance. However, the concepts with which this question is generally approached are, it is argued, deficient in comprehending the nature of these risks. In particular, the individualistic language of rights presents severe difficulties. An alternative understanding of responsibility is required, which, it is argued, can be developed from phenomenological and feminist (...)

    Invested in Unsustainability? On the Psychosocial Patterning of Engagement in Practices.Christopher Groves, Karen Henwood, Fiona Shirani, Catherine Butler, Karen Parkhill & Nick Pidgeon - 2016 - Environmental Values 25 (3):309-328.
    Understanding how and why practices may be transformed is vital for any transition towards socio-environmental sustainability. However, theorising and explaining the role of individual agency in practice change continues to present challenges. In this paper we propose that theories of practice can be usefully combined with a psychosocial framework to explain how agency is biographically patterned and how this patterning is a product of attachment relationships and emergent strategies for dealing with uncertainty. Biographical interview data from the project Energy Biographies (...)

    Energy Biographies: Narrative Genres, Lifecourse Transitions, and Practice Change.Nick Pidgeon, Karen Parkhill, Catherine Butler, Fiona Shirani, Karen Henwood & Christopher Groves - 2016 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 41 (3):483-508.
    The problem of how to make the transition to a more environmentally and socially sustainable society poses questions about how such far-reaching social change can be brought about. In recent years, lifecourse transitions have been identified by a range of researchers as opportunities for policy and other actors to intervene to change how individuals use energy, taking advantage of such disruptive transitions to encourage individuals to be reflexive toward their lifestyles and how they use the technological infrastructures on which they (...)

    What Counts as Success? Wider Implications of Achieving Planning Permission in a Low-Impact Ecovillage.Fiona Shirani, Christopher Groves, Karen Henwood, Nick Pidgeon & Erin Roberts - 2020 - Environmental Values 29 (3):339-359.
    The need for energy system change in order to address the energy 'trilemma' of security, affordability and sustainability is well documented and requires the active involvement of individuals, families and communities who currently engage with these systems and technologies. Alongside technical developments designed to address these challenges, alternative ways of living are increasingly being envisaged by those involved in low-impact development. This article draws on data from a qualitative longitudinal study involving residents of a low-impact ecovillage in West Wales, UK, (...)

    Texturing Waste: Attachment and Identity in Every-Day Consumption and Waste Practices.Gareth Thomas, Christopher Groves, Karen Henwood & Nick Pidgeon - 2017 - Environmental Values 26 (6):733-755.
    Waste has often been a target of literature and policy promoting pro-environmental behaviour. However, little attention has been paid to how subjects interpret and construct waste in their daily lives. In this article we develop a synthesis of practice theory and psycho-social concepts of attachment and transitional space to explore how biographically patterned relationships and attachments to practice shape subjects' understandings of resource consumption and disposal. Deploying biographical interview data produced by the Energy Biographies Project, we illustrate how tangible, intersubjective (...)
