The idea of ecological rationality is developed as a form of reason which can act as a warrant for policy recommendations and decisions. The claims of ecological rationality are compared with those of economic and political rationality, the forms of reason in which public policy justifications are normally grounded. It is argued that ecological rationality is a more fundamental form of reason than either of these, and hence should take precedence over them in collective decisions.
