In this collection of essays, Karl Homann outlines the foundations for a system of ethics in the 21st century. This has to be based on advantages and incentives, since in the age of globalization there is no other conceivable basis for ethics. Ethical problems are changing, and the emphasis for solving them is on institutional reforms. In order to deal with these problems, ethics has to work together with the social sciences, in particular with economics.
In this collection of essays, Karl Homann outlines the foundations for the ethics of the future. The ethics of the 21st century has to be based on advantages and incentives, since in the age of globalization there is no other conceivable basis for ethics. It is to be expected that every one of us is going to pursue his own interests and that the only way to achieve improvements is by creating incentives. Ethical problems are changing, and the emphasis for solving them is on institutional reforms. In order to deal with these problems, ethics has to work together with the social sciences, in particular with economics. A collaboration of this nature is discernible in this volume and is exemplified by ethical and methodological questions.
