Persons in community - African ethics in a global culture (Paperback)


Is there a distinctive African perspective on right and wrong? Do ethical frameworks differ across cultures? Is there such a thing as a common global ethic? Do traditional African ethical views have anything to contribute to this global ethic? Can traditional African ethics survive in a world increasingly dominated by a single global economy? The contributors to this title show that there are distinctive common strands in African ethical views, although these need to be examined and challenged. They apply these strands to very different contexts: the worlds of business, medicine, government, political change and gender relationships. The authors reveal that despite being rooted in a traditional past, African ethics are in a continuous state of development and change. There can be no doubt that they ave a considerable contribution to make to an emerging global ethic. This title demands that the African voice is heard.
