  4. Thomas Kesselring (2003). Utilitarismus, Menschenrechte und Nichtregierungs-Organisationen. Analyse & Kritik 2 (2):259-274.
    The following comment on Peter Singer's One World is divided into four parts. It starts with some objections against Singer's utilitarian approach . Then it argues for an 'Ethics of Globalization' which at the same time has universal validity and maintains context sensitivity .

By EE knowledge is seen as portraying or copying process, and truth is interpreted as a product of adaptation, whereas for GE knowledge is due to a construction process in which the production of true insights is only (...)
