Ethics and Communication
Global Perspectives
Edited by Göran Collste

June 2016 | HB 9781783485970 | $120.00/ £80.00 | PB 9781783485987 | $39.95 / £24.95 | eBook 9781783485994 | $38.99 / £24.99

How do we communicate morals and values in a world that is becoming increasingly interdependent? This collection of essays explores ethics and communication with reference to specific world views and religions, focusing on the challenge of globalisation for ethical communication in particular social arenas.

This important new text:

  • Provides insight into theoretical questions pertaining to ethics and communication in an age of globalisation.
  • Considers these questions with reference to specific world views and religions, and the challenge of globalisation for ethical communication in particular social arenas.
  • Pursues both the classical question of the universality/contextuality of ethics and values, but also new challenges for communication relating to how values and norms are communicated and shared across cultural and political borders.
  • Includes case studies and a particular focus on the meaning of intercultural ethics.

Relation, Vulnerability, Love: Theological Anthropology in the 21st Century

Call for papers

This conference is organized by research group Anthropos (Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, KU Leuven) in Leuven, 15-17 September 2016.

Keynote speakers/respondents are:

  • Michael Banner (University of Cambridge, UK)

  • Brian Brock (University of Aberdeen, UK)

  • Luigino Bruni (LUMSA University, Italy)

  • Maureen O'Connell (LaSalle University, US)

  • Elizabeth O’Donnell Gandolfo (Wake Forrest University, US)

  • Paul Fiddes (Oxford University, UK)

  • Jan-Olav Henriksen (Norwegian School of Theology, Norway) / Markus Mühling (Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Germany)

  • Wonhee Anne Joh (Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary, US)

  • Elina Hankela (University of Helsinki, Finland)

    Relation, vulnerability, love are three concepts we consider important for a theological anthropology in the 21st century. Moreover, it is a trilogy we read in crescendo. That is, the primacy of relationality leads us to understand vulnerability as a universal human condition that is the condition of possibility for both suffering and flourishing. Love is the Christian notion that indicates the deepest reality of such relationality and vulnerability as well as its eschatological destiny. A central concern is that these three notions not only indicate or characterize the content of theological anthropology but also have implications for how theological anthropology is to be done.
