Abstract:
La domanda principale che la cooperazione deve porsi è sapere ciò che, in ogni azione, può aumentare o diminuire il potere delle persone e delle comunità e a quale gruppo sociale la cooperazione apporta più giustizia, più diritti, più libertà. È necessario per questo partire da un approccio basato sui diritti dell'uomo il cui obiettivo è quello di aumentare le capacità delle persone che rendono effettivo l'esercizio delle libertà e responsabilità. Il rispetto dei diritti definisce un insieme di regole di comportamento che i governi devono osservare per permettere alle persone di vivere in dignità e in libertà.

Abstract:
L'auteur étudie en premier lieu l'organisation de l'Église maronite du Liban, et cherche à démontrer l'incidence de celle-ci sur la construction de l'État libanais. Cette visée méthodologique l'induit ensuite à remonter à l'origine de l'Église maronite dès le Ve siècle en Syrie, puis enfin à s'intéresser à son développement dans la Montagne libanaise jusqu'en 1920. La thèse centrale soutenue est que cette période de l'histoire est à même d'éclairer le Liban d'aujourd'hui, comme elle l'a fait de manière exemplaire jusqu'au Pacte National de 1943. C'est dans ce Moyen-Orient, composé d'une forte prédominance du religieux dans les rapports entre groupes que le Liban prend forme, avec ses réalités géopolitiques et ses enjeux stratégiques. Afin de réaliser cette recherche, l'auteur a effectué de nombreux voyages au Liban, parcourant celui-ci en bus, ou à pied par exemple dans la Qadisha - la Vallée Sainte - difficilement accessible au sein de la Montagne chrétienne.

Abstract:
当今全球性的信仰与伦理、道德缺失,虽然已经成为人们的普遍共识,但相较于生态环境问题,还远没有引起足够的关注和建设性投入,物质空前丰富与精神相对匮乏的不平衡已经成为当代社会不得不解决的基础性问题。本书揭示了信仰与价值观危机、伦理与道德危机是一切社会危机的根源。企业和企业家是当代经济社会的主体和领导力量,然而企业家这一团体的价值观现状恰恰是最不容乐观的。本书用一个崭新的视角回答信仰在企业家和企业的效用,找寻企业家信仰与企业绩效之间的联系,发掘企业家价值观与价值创造的内在联系,并总结了有爱的企业家类型。这本书可为构建有爱的企业家价值观提供有益借鉴。

Abstract:
This piece of work focuses on the role of the church in sustainable development. The church is a major player because of the big numbers that constitute her institution. She has an everyday opportunity, and over binding responsibility to fulfill her ministry mandate. The church is one of the front line players in development, and her place is vital because she is supposed to engage a holistic role in development, more than any other player does. The author looks at development from a divine perspective, and expects all developers, to integrate the biblical teaching so that it can make meaning theologically and ecologically to sustain holistic development.

Abstract:
The professional application of ethics often lacks the necessary conceptual tools to construct adequate theoretical foundations that can be used for practical enterprise. This book focuses on an anthropological approach to mental illness, describing how schizophrenia can distort one's experience of empathy and of the presence in the world through pathological indifference. It describes factual and phenomenological perspectives on a case of schizophrenia, based on the method of Eugène Minkowski.

Abstract:
Women are subjected to all kinds of violence, such as rape, forced marriage, forced identity, dependence, and a lack of freedom of expression, giving rise to the status of women as second-class citizens. Despite this gloomy picture, women across cultures agree that this denigration can only be stopped and reversed if those who are victims are educated so that they can discuss the problems, proper solutions, and see to their implementation. Many female authors write about the trauma that women undergo and the various ways in which women are marginalized in a male-dominated society. This thesis is based on novels by two female authors, Second Class Citizen (1974) by Buchi Emecheta from Ibuzo, Nigeria, and Das verborgene Wort (2001) by Ulla Hahn from Kirchhundem, Sauerland, Germany. It critically discusses the subjugation of women and violence against them through the prism of the novels' main characters.

Abstract:
Esta segunda parte del volumen Ética y Economía reúne en su contenido los temas centrales de los tres Diálogos de Alto Nivel que se sucedieron luego del primero realizado en noviembre de 2016. Los tópicos que recorren los distintos capítulos del libro colocan los problemas que el desarrollo aporta desde una perspectiva de inclusión social teniendo en cuenta los desafíos que entrañan el avance de la tecnología y la automatización para el mundo del trabajo, las finanzas, las relaciones de género y la sostenibilidad ambiental. Los resultados de los cuatro diálogos de alto nivel fueron presentados en términos de Recomendaciones y Conclusiones desde Ética y Economía al Foro Global del G20 Interfaith. Ello permite abrir una nueva etapa para seguir profundizando a través del debate multidisciplinario la construcción de soluciones justas y sostenibles.
