Globalance: Ethics Handbook for a Balanced World Post-Covid

 

Christoph Stückelberger: Globalance: Ethics Handbook for a Balanced World Post-Covid

Author: Christoph Stückelberger

The key questions of this book "Globalance" are: How can we transform current disruptions, polarizations and imbalances in the world into a new dynamic world order and global balances? How can ethics contribute to this transition by a balance of values and virtues? How can we do it under the conditions of the world Post-Covid?

The focus of this book is not to describe what is nor to predict the future, but to give an orientation for what should be. The goal is a value-orientation, based on the value of a global balance for politics, economics, culture and religions and after analysis of the factual data. The methodology of this book is normative ethics. The norms for decisions and actions are fundamental values and virtues.

Quote from Preface

"How can the fragile, dangerously imbalanced world of today be transformed into balanced societies capable of dealing with opposites, differences and putting them in relation by relational thinking and action? This is the question of this very timely and much-needed book Globalance. It calls for a balance, but not in a superficial way of superficial peacemaking. The book digs deep into the question, by analysing polarities from an ethical perspective as poles of values and virtues, which belong together.

Christoph Stückelberger applies the concept of balanced values-poles to thirty sectors of society. Readers are encouraged to closely look at the domains of their prior interest. Readers will immediately notice that different sectors are always mutually interrelated. Stückelberger shows, how the technological divide, the political competition between superpowers, the non-sustainable financial system, religious fundamentalisms, education and many more sectors need to be seen in a holistic way as a global interdependent system. He proposes solutions by including latest information and insights from the current pandemic."

Prof. Dr Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Environmental Scientist, Politician, past Co-President of the Club of Rome, writes in the Preface:  

Reviews

Without ethics and trust, our societies are in deep trouble. Corona is a chance to reflect. Stückelberger gives us an overview with a lot of background information. The book helps us to be aware of risks, opportunities and our responsibility. It encourages to more international cooperation. Many thanks! quotation mark

Doris Leuthard, Former Minister of Environment of the Government of Switzerland, twice its President, Member of the Kofi Annan Foundation

When the global village is facing disintegration and globalisation is heading towards the cliff, how can the human heart and ethics return to the trust of the global family? Stuckelberger is a profound observer and theorist of global ethics. He ignites the torch of people's conscience. This book is very enlightening to provide a reference direction. quotation mark
