Abstract:
This book is concerned by the effectiveness of a limited number of cardinal virtues that great religions have in common with philosophical ethics, and the author uses philosophy as a practical aim for better inviting value- and reason-oriented actions. Based on the virtue of hope, the author thinks the very essence of fair conditions for education as transformative education. Deriving from the virtue of justice, we find a firm foundation for peace research and reconciliation programmes. Courage and productivity are, in a judicious manner, related to the value of work. Trust, the virtue of love and common good are matters of the management of natural and economic resources. As we discover each chapter after the other, the whole work is revealed to be grounded on a hierarchy of virtues.

Abstract:
This " Interreligious Ethics Manual for Indonesia" consists of five papers. Three papers discuss the ethical prerequisites needed to develop more conducive conditions for people of different religious traditions to live together, in shared public spaces in general, in universities and also in print and online through journalism. The other two papers provide concrete examples of ethical issues in interreligious marriage and in journalism. As a manual, this book completes the volume "Social Ethics in interreligious interaction", which is a more theoretical text. The manual is deliberately written in a more accessible way to be used as a resource during training programmes for community groups at different levels. Hopefully this book can make a valuable contribution to Indonesian's pluralistic society of today, enabling better interaction with others and fostering respect.

It is a very moving family ethical exposition that will build up parents and help them to rethink their approach to family practises. It is a book intended to raise awareness of the subtle dangers that unintentional neglect can cause, potentially damaging their families and their children's future.

Abstract:
Fundamentalism is a reality on all continents, in all world religions and in different political and economic movements and world views. It influences political, cultural, religious and economic development. "Overcoming fundamentalism" is a program. The contributors of this book do not call for military or power-related answers to fight fundamentalism. They carefully analyse the root causes and call for ethical responses through a value-oriented development, through respect by an active tolerance which is more than "everything goes", by a holistic globalization which is much more than economic growth and open markets and by new concepts of the public role of religions. The book shows the commitment of Globethics.net to strengthen global common values while at the same time respecting the context and diversity of values.

Abstract:
Religions influence all sectors of society. To a great extent, this is true for the Protestant Genevan Reformer John Calvin (1509-1564) with his global influence and impact. His work is still highly relevant to today's economy. In his writings he emphasized on equitable markets and fair interests. In politics, he was an early door-opener for democracy, and he approached science with an open minded curiosity. His ethics is deeply rooted in his faith in the merciful and guiding Christian God. All human efforts should serve the Glory of God.

Abstract:
As global ethics emerges as an important answer to the common issues facing humankind, we cannot spare a reflection on the process leading to a consensus on global values. If we are to break political, economic, ideological, cultural, religious and gender-based patterns of domination in the debate on global ethics, we must ensure that all parties to the dialogue are able to express their values freely and in their own fashion.
