ABSTRACT These notes present an exposition of selected contributions to the “Limits to Growth” debate which took place in the late 1960’s and early 70’s, focusing especially on the authors’ points of view with regard to the relation between technology and environment. A brief introduction to the debated themes is accomplished through the analysis of contributions outside the economic field, mainly from original works by American biologists and well positioned groups of contributors. Propositions stated by economists from several theoretical affiliations are briefly presented. Finally, we try to interpret the observed questions in the light of Georgescu-Roegen’s ideas.
