Abstract: The American Philosophical Association, in the February 1973 issue of its Bulletin (No. 14), :requested contributions on the topic: "Can it be asserted that future generations have rights, for example, to pure air?" The response raised two second-order questions: (a) why did the participants find so little explicit discussion of the problem to work upon? Cb) why did they find so much interest in it now? The paradox in the conjunction of these two questions is not very difficult to resolve:the problem has only become real recently. The reasons for its late emergence, however, may well deserve stating.
