In a time of globalization, Political Philosophy for the Global Age provides a theoretical basis for the convergence of human values in terms of legitimate conceptions of time, language, and notions of self. Sánchez Flores reviews what she considers to be the most important positions in the current debate on political theory (liberalism, communitarianism, feminism, and postcolonialism) and also proposes her own original contribution. Sánchez Flores’s unique approach is a critique of a type of morality formulated solely on the basis of the Judeo-Christian view of reality. It is a theoretical construct that becomes an invitation to explore other notions of human morality and an inquiry into the need to produce a political philosophy that universalizes an ethics of caring and responsibility as well as provides a locus where diverse human cultures can meet.

"This is a major contribution to social and political theory in the global age. Without being postmodern or anti modern, Sanchez Flores shows how the categories of Western understanding have universalized a particular and limited set of experiences. Rejecting the dogmatic inclusion offered within these categories, she offers a radically new way of thinking about the dilemmas of life together in a common world, one that is open to ways of thinking and being outside the western tradition. It is necessary reading for anyone who wants to engage with the issues of a truly global political philosophy."

- Professor John Holmwood, University of Sussex
