Summary This book focuses on the normative questions raised by the postulation and declaration of a global ethic. Its scope covers the questions "why do we need a global ethic?", "what kind of global ethic do we need and what sort of normative justification does it imply?" The book considers the imperative of global ethic to be plausible because it demands consistency in the application of the rule or standard of moral behavior
