Promising the Earth: The Need for Engelian Convenant-Making in the Anthropocene

Brendan Mackey, Nicole Rogers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter explores the covenantal aspects of Engel’s work to think about the future of the Earth Charter. It is guided by the ongoing struggle to make the covenants of civilization more deliberately responsive to the true life-sustaining relationships of our existence, more inclusive in their membership, more respectful and caring of the integrities of their members, and more holistic in their grasp of the multiple moral concerns that must be met for communities to survive and thrive.
