Ethics for an age of globalization and exclusion

Dussel's ethics begins with a consideration of the importance of history for ethics in general and for us, in particular, in an age of globalization and exclusion. The first part of the work concerns foundational ethics, where he grounds three principles: a material principle, a formal or validity principle, and a feasibility principle. The second part deals with critical ethics, where he grounds three additional principles of ethics: a principle of the recognition of the corporeal dignity of co-subjects, the critical-discursive principle, and the liberation principle. This ethics offers itself as a third way between neo-Kantianism and neo-Aristotelianism, and as an ethics that reflects out of the pressing problem of the growing impoverishment of 75 per cent of humans on the planet. Key Words: critique • ethics • formal • globalization • justification • liberation • material • universalization.
