I would like to mature my thinking regarding ethics in a pluri-cultural world.

Which are interesting reads addressing questions such as:

  • Should we do commerce exchange with cultures that do not respect women rights ?
  • Under which terms can cultural imperialism be justified (i.e. fighting for world-wide human rights and democracy) ?
  • How to relate to individuals/groups/cultures with radically different perspectives (e.g. no notion of animals rights) ?

I have a small preference for books/essays authored by european philosophers (of any time), but any recommendation is welcome.


Peter Singer's One World: The Ethics of Globalization (Worldcat link) is a good, brief and thoughtful read on this topic. It discusses humanitarian intervention and moral responsibility and the challenges of those in an interconnected world.
