The Mundialization of Home in the Age of Globalization: Towards a Transcultural Ethics

By In-Suk Cha

This book examines the worldwide cultural diffusion, which, along with economic globalization, is ever widening the boundaries of an individual and a group's homeworld as alien cultures are absorbed into each other. This process is called 'the mundialization of home.' The spherical movement of capital, goods, technology, and workforce across national borders is also accompanied by spread of ideas, beliefs, values, and customs among diverse cultures. And, as people in newly emerging market societies are being brought to self-awareness as individual citizens, they have begun to address issues of individual freedom, social justice, human rights, global environmental change, and civil society.
