Rethinking public health ethics ecologically

In this paper we examine the interplay among key constitutive factors that make up the self and explore the ramifications of that constitutive view for public health ethics. We previously identified factors that interact to make up the porous nature of the self. Some of these factors are causal, in that they merely influence externally an otherwise stable self; and some are constitutive, in that they make up what it is to be a self in the first place. Yet do those interactions amplify or subdue the outcomes that they make possible?
