(p.1) Introduction
Value and Values

Roger T. Ames

University of Hawai'i Press

This book explores the relationship between economics and justice, and more specifically between value and values, in an age of increasingly complex global interdependence. It consists of a collection of essays that embed human life within dynamic environmental contexts, challenge liberalist economic models, and support meaningful reconceptualizations of globalization, economic vitality, welfare, justice, and other contemporary issues. It addresses the themes of interdependence and relationality, dynamicism and contextuality, and equity and diversity and describes relational and interdependent conceptions of personhood as the basis of critical engagement with environmental issues, economics, ethics, politics, and institutional life. This introduction provides a brief historical sketch of the conceptual bifurcation of value and values and highlights the cognitive and cultural diversity of attempts to conversationally reconcile the two concepts by critically balancing the claims and considerations of economics and ethics.

Keywords:   economics, justice, global interdependence, environment, globalization, relationality, equity, personhood, ethics, value
