Summary
"This book is aimed at professional academics and advanced students in the areas of philosophy, political theory, law, geography, anthropology, development and international relations. It is suitable for use as recommended reading for advanced courses in moral and political philosophy, as well as in development economics and ethics, where it will form a useful complement and update to Gillian Brock's 1998 Necessary Goods, engaging with new issues as it does, including for example the popular 'capability approach' to development. Research students working on need will find it an essential reference, and teachers and the general public will find in it useful treatment of contemporary moral issues. Professional philosophers seeking a new seam of conceptual inquiry may be inspired by it to begin new work exploring, for example, the relationship between human need and other forms of necessity, and the relationship between need and patiency, passivity and suffering."--Jacket
