Ethics Facing Globalization / Ethique face a la globalisation
In our epoch of globalisation, almost all the parts and regions of the world would more frequently interact, if not grow together, at least economically speaking and via electronic information exchange, leading to worldwide virtual ubiquity. Whether this sort of economic and informational globalization may lead to a cosmopolitan orientation, if not unity, of the different parts and regions of the world, is an intriguing question. Although the world became much more interconnected and interactive in terms of economics, information exchange and air traffic, the different cultural and social traditions still remain. Despite the noticeable globalization in economics and information real cosmopolitanism did not yet succeed very widely. All this would highlight ethical questions of an intercultural character which are discussed in the present volume from an analytical, methodological, and cosmopolitan perspective.
