Pay for Risk: Philosophical Perspectives
2.149 MB File

From airport security to nuclear power and safety on trains to public health scares, debates about risk are rarely out of the headlines. How can we determine an acceptable level of risk? Should these decisions be made by experts, or by the people they affect? How should safety and security be balanced against other goods, such as liberty? This is the first collection to examine the philosophical dimensions of these pressing practical problems. In this outstanding volume, Tim Lewens gathers an impressive set of new essays from leading scholars exploring the full range of philosophical implications of risk, including: risk and ethicsrisk and rationalityrisk and scientific expertiserisk and lay knowledgethe objectivity of risk assessmentrisk and the precautionary principlerisk and terror.With contributions from  Carl F. Cranor, Sven Ove Hansson, Martin Kusch, Tim Lewens, D.H. Mellor, Adam Morton, Stephen Perry, Martin Peterson, Alan Ryan, Per Sandin, Cass R. Sunstein and Jonathan Wolff; this collection is essential reading, not only for philosophers and researchers in legal, economic and environmental studies, but for those seeking to gain a better understanding of the decisions we must make as concerned citizens.
