[Thomas Princen] -- Builds sufficiency as a principle for sustainability with concepts and case studies and shows how seeking enough when more is possible is intuitive, rational and ethical.-publisher description.

Rather, when resource depletion and overconsumption are real, sufficiency is about doing well. It is about good work and good governance; it is about goods that are good only to a point.

With examples ranging from timbering and fishing to automobility and meat production, Princen shows that sufficiency is perfectly sensible and yet absolutely. Book Review Perspectives: Princen, The Logic of Sufficiency the long-term survival of a resource being exploited is possible, and indeed desirable, and he sees this as the way out of our environmental malaise.

In Chapter 1, he outlines the principle of sufficiency, then. This book is an introduction to logic for students of contemporary philosophy. It covers i) basic approaches to logic, including proof theory and especially model theory, ii) extensions of standard logic (such as modal logic) that are important in philosophy, and iii) some elementary philosophy of logic.

The most important part of this book is left unfinished: The Logic of Sufficiency lays out the beginnings of a set of principles, assumptions and connecting theory for rationally and collectively self-managing complex adaptive systems (which almost all natural and social systems substantially are).
