Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Globalization and Political Ethics contains a table of contents and Introduction. The book discusses history and philosophical ethics, then measures the current institutional and political realities against philosophical ideals, and finally returns more concretely to weigh present prospects against the current philosophical discourse concerning what can and what ought to be done. By framing such questions in terms of state-centered Hegelian ethics and the universal-cosmopolitan claims of Kantian morality, to make a contribution to clarifying both the challenges and the opportunities that one face. In an historical process, there are no determinate ends, and accordingly prescribe no ultimate solutions. Instead, our fundamental theme throughout this work is human responsibility in circumstances that often appear to deny human agency.

Keywords: globalization; Kantian morality; political ethics
