18 December 2012. The ESPI director, Peter Hulsroj, has just published a book on non-space topics, ‘The Principle of Proportionality’. The book applies the proportionality principle to a diverse range of issues in the social sciences. The book is published by Springer.
The book ‘The Principle of Proportionality’ contains 7 rather self-standing chapters in which proportionality is analysed relative to subjects such as criminal law, global governance, globalisation, evolutionary theory. It suggests that there is ample room in the social sciences to emulate the natural sciences more, with the scrupulous adherence of the latter to proportionality.
