some introductory words by Professor
Think of the diverse human beliefs and practices of the past and the present as
cultural resources available to be employed in the construction of a world that
works for everybody. Think of the social sciences as innovative language-games,
not as mirrors that reflect social reality, but as social movements that
reconstitute social reality. Think of the problems of constructing sustainable
relationships between the human species and the biosphere; of instituting peace;
and of achieving social justice; as problems of methodology. Think of the global
economy as the logic of the market writ large. Think of the logic of the market
as the survival strategy followed by the human animal when faced with an
environment fundamentally shaped by the legal framework of the modern civil
codes that govern commerce.

The modern codes update but do not transform
principles drawn from ancient Rome - suum cuique, honeste vivare, non fit injuria,
pacta sunt servandum. How can "we" transform the universal minimal morality of
the market into a mosaic of diverse solidarities, while at the same time coping
with the systemic imperatives of economic reality as it is currently
constituted? That is the question I try to answer in my work.
Who is this "we"? That is another question I try to answer.
