A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The nature of ethics has been the subject of much controversy and argument in recent decades. Theological Ethics and Global Dynamics tackles these various debates, offering a wide-ranging, comprehensive, and provocative statement of the nature of theological ethics in global times. It offers an accessible, lively, and provocative statement of the nature of moral philosophy and theological ethics in contemporary times. It tackles various perspectives on debates about distinctly Christian ethics. It argues that we need to reframe the arena in which moral questions are asked. It engages a range of positions, exploring distinctively modern issues such as moral and cultural relativism, globalization, problems of consumption and violence, and religious pluralism. It addresses the complexity of certain ethical decisions, which are difficult and far from clear-cut, and yet presents an ethical understanding which is both humane and deeply religious.

Offers an accessible, lively, and provocative statement of the nature of moral philosophy and theological ethics in contemporary times. Tackles various perspectives on debates about distinctly Christian ethics. Argues that we need to reframe the arena in which moral questions are asked. Engages a range of positions, exploring distinctively modern issues such as moral and cultural relativism, globalization, problems of consumption and violence, and religious pluralism. Addresses the complexity of certain ethical decisions, which are difficult and far from clear?cut, and yet presents an ethical understanding which is both humane and deeply religious.

Critique:

"A remarkable book clearly written, intellectually charged, and experientially true. Schweiker is hard?nosed about the ambiguities and corruptions of globalization. Yet he finds an antidote in religious narratives and metaphors that can bring peoples together rather than divide. This fresh theological synthesis will challenge scholars and inspire students with its hopeful vision of responsibility for ?the integrity of life.?" Lisa Cahill, J. Donald Monan, S. J., Professor of Theology at Boston College "In the tradition of the theology of culture of Paul Tillich and the theological ethics of H Richard Niebuhr, William Schweiker provides the kind of theology of culture and ethics needed for our entirely new situation, which he nicely notes is a "twilight era". Readers will be informed and at times transformed by this analysis." David Tracy, Andrew Thomas Greeley and Grace McNichols Greeley Distinguished Service Professor of Catholic Studies and Professor of Theology and Philosophy of Religion in the Divinity School and the Committee on Social Thought, The University of Chicago "This book, by one of the leading North American ethicists, gives us strong arguments for the orienting power of a theological humanism in a pluralistic world. Schweiker demonstrates how theological ethics can shed light on different realms of life in our complex world in order to rise to the challenge of current global dynamics."  Michael Welker, Ruprecht?Karls?Universitat Heidelberg "Attentive to the multicultural dialogue of the present age and the wide divisions opened up by international terrorism, especially the horror of 11 September 2001, this book offers a quite valid reflection on the ethic of responsibility, based on the key issue of the integrity of life." José?Román Flecha, Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Ethical Perspectives This is a fruitful and productive study I strongly commend this study for its originality and for its critical rigor. Thomas W. Ogletree, Yale University Divinity School
