Overcoming Fundamentalism: Ethical Responses from Five Continents

Overcoming Fundamentalism: Ethical Perspectives from Five Continents

Editors: Heidi Hadsell and Christoph Stückelberger

ISBN: 978-2-940428-00-7
Series number: Global No. 2
Publication: 2009

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 to strengthen global common values while at the same time respecting the context and diversity of values.
