Rebecca Todd Peters provides a helpful overview of the complicated contemporary debates about globalization. By engaging in a careful reading of the cacophony of views on globalization, she unearths four identifiable positions within these debates, each offering a different moral vision of the world. As she observes, policy debates about the direction that globalization should move are morally serious debates about what values humanity will choose as most significant in the post-Cold War world. In Search of the Good Life argues that our moral task is to ensure that globalization proceeds in ways that honor creation and life and that any theory of globalization ought to be grounded in values that emphasize a democratized understanding of power, encourage care for the planet, and promote people's social well-being.
