“Viewing Globalization and the Ethical Imperative Through a Humanist Lens”
The presentation will interpret the ethical implications of globalization with a focus on the role of human reason and agency. This will be based on both a broad empirical examination of salient features of the emergent global society and economy and its associated new moral imperatives.
