Is a Universal Morality possible?

L’Harmattan Publishing (2015)

Ferenc Hörcher
Hungarian Academy Of Sciences
This volume - the joint effort of the research groups on practical philosophy and the history of political thought of the Institute of Philosophy of the Research Centre for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences - brings together scholarly essays that attempt to face the challenges of the contemporary situation. The authors come from rather divergent disciplinary backgrounds, including philosophy, law, history, literature and the social sciences, from different cultural and political contexts, including Central, Eastern and Western Europe, and belong to different generations. But they all share an interest to bravely answer the large topical issues concerning universal morality, here and now.
