The Idea of Values
William L. McBride, Editor
Talk about values is incessant
in the globalized world of this new millennium, but what does this concept
mean? Does it have the same meaning across cultures and epochs? And what
is, or may be, the future of values? In this volume, these issues are
addressed by philosophers from Germany, Greece, India, Russia, Turkey,
the United Kingdom, and the United States, writing under the auspices
of the International Federation of Philosophy Societies (FISP). Prepared
on the occasion of the Twenty-first
World Congress of Philosophy, it constitutes a resumption of the FISP
series “Ideas Underlying Global Problems”. This volume was published with
the support of the International Council of Philosophy and Humanistic
