This study provides a theological and social ethics for an
ecological age. It develops a concept of right for an order
of creaturely life. This order consists of a „society“
that encompasses humans and other creatures. The concept of
right presented here is elaborated by reference to a
postnatural condition, which rejects claims of a given
natural order. Strong contrasts between nature and the human
as well as nature and technology are also called into
question. A pioneering study, this theory of right faces an
ecological horizon, draws on theological resources in the
doctrine of creation and proposes an ethics towards a freer
social order.
