About the Book:
Cosmopolitan Ethics is an idea whose time has come. We live in a cosmopolitan world of globalization, where the very details of life from around the world are at your digital fingertips, and the cross section of the world’s cultures and belief systems are together in schools and organizations at every level and almost every locale.
However, we still behave in ways more in line with tribal societies of long ago. Our technology has brought us closer together, but our intellectual and philosophical frameworks are limited in their ability to help us navigate this brave new world.
Cosmopolitan Ethics is simple, but not easy. The speeches and proceedings from a panel discussion at Morehouse College ask and answer the question: how ought we to get along? This short book gives a wonderful introduction to the deep and exciting body of knowledge on how we need to think, and act, to make the world a place of peace and harmony. The perspectives of the participants are diverse in ethnic origin, religious affiliation, and academic discipline. Yet, they all contribute to a mosaic of understanding that can be helpful for readers regardless of whether they are long term students or newcomers to Cosmopolitan Ethics.
