Hopefully this book can make a valuable contribution to Indonesian's pluralistic society of today, enabling better interaction with others and fostering respect.

Overcoming Fundamentalism: Ethical Responses from Five Continents
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.
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.
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.
