Description: 

"Globalization" is not an ethical issue. Rather, this contested term refers to series of developments destabilizing established ethical and political frameworks, vastly expanding horizons for thinking about every issue, transforming the calculus of promising possibilities versus grave risks, and introducing new issues and priorities, all requiring new ethical frameworks and interdisciplinary methods. With special reference to the growing chorus of diverse voices associated with the "anti-globalization" or "alternative globalization" movements, review of debates on key social justice and eco-justice issues (e.g., climate change, growing gaps between rich and poor, global security, biotechnologies). Implications for ethical views of human capacities to act on planetary scales, the most promising disciplines for channeling and constraining them, and the roles of Christian communities in nurturing moral subjects and shaping public debates. Readings, class participation, short papers, and (for AD students) research paper - adult learning process.
