Project: Intercultural ethics : Dream or possibility?

project duration
01-OCT-94 – 31-DEC-99
The inquiry into the feasability of a transcultural or 'common morality' as it is carried out in contemporary literature is wrongly concentrated on the acceptance or rejection of the enlightenment paradigm with regard to morality. My starting point consists of an inter and intracultural comparative perspective By comparing modern Western ethics with classical Greek and other non Western moralies I will formulate a version of 'the moral domain' which will enable us to take into account non Western ethics and moralities.
