Religion and Ethics in a Globalizing World : Conflict, Dialogue, and Transformation Hardback
Edited by L. Anceschi, J. Camilleri, R. Palapathwala, Andrew Wicking
Around the world religion is an increasingly vital and pervasive force in both personal and public life.
Though this trend has been widely noted, its long-term implications are as yet only dimly perceived.
Will this be a force for healing or for violence? To express the question to its most dramatic, yet urgent form: can the world's major religious traditions respond constructively to contemporary challenges in the public sphere that are now, by definition, global?
Religion and Ethics in a Globalizing World seeks to address this question, and to contribute to a greater understanding of the role of religion in the paradoxical context of a world that is increasingly unified, but which remains fundamentally plural.
