9780819186409: Moralizing Cultures (History of Morality)

This book takes part in the current revival of social-scientific interest in the study of moralities by seeking to introduce as its foundation a cross-civilizational framework that makes it possible to subject all traditions seeking to induce socially responsible behavior, both religious and secular, to systematic investigation. Contents: Preface; Analytical Orientations; Ancestral Voices; Moralizing Arrangements: Traditional Systems of Moralization, Modern Systems of Moralization, On the Coordination of Moral Cultures, Symbolic Designs: Civilizational Rebels, Romanticism and Daoism; Logic of Evil as Secular Moralities, Into A Later, More Global Modernity: The Humanization of Morality; Index.
