New Visions: The Future Global Order

  • Masudul Alam Choudhury


With the passage now happening from modernity to post-modernity and beyond with the dawning of the new millennium, great questions have loomed in respect to the future configuration of the world. Such challenging questions arise both in the realm of thought and application of the same to human realities. The methodological search once again tends to be deeply epistemological both in the natural and social sciences. Within these are taken up the pressing demand for ethics and morality in a total concept of value in politico-economic transactions. That means not simply the ethicizing dimensions of market exchange but also the ethical transformation of the preferences of polity and of the agents that interact with polity in respect to institutional, social and economic needs.
