on December 28, 2005
Dr. Kane provides a compelling discussion of some of the most difficult philosophical and religious issues that greet us at the dawn of the 21st century. As the world grows smaller with the advancement of communication technologies we see cultures, religions, and political ideologies getting larger than their borders and forcing us to think about diversity and pluralism in a new way. Can there be universal ethical consensus given the wide variety of belief systems that seem at times to be fundamentally contradictory? Can our political structures evolve to face the new challenges of our times, or are they destined to become distinct in the mad race of globalization? Kane offers persuasive answers to these questions and more and invites readers into dialogue and deliberation concerning issues that are all too frequently dominated by dogma and partisan ideology. Kane's readable style appeals to those unfamiliar with philosophical jargon but simultaneously maintains the intellectual rigor one would expect in this type of intellectual endeavor. I highly recommend this book to people who are concerned about societal issues and want to think pragmatically about solutions for the dawning of a new era.
