Challenging market and religious fundamentalisms: The emergence of "ethics, cosmovisions, and spiritualities" in the world social forum
This extraordinary initiative in the World Social Forum resists the abstract reductionism of both market and religious fundamentalisms, concretizing the spiritual dimension in human life as a global ethic of plural and ecumenical solidarity (social hope). It represents an embedding of a new religious subjectivity in social change movements, in opposition to the self-interest and individualism of neo-liberal subjectivity that identifi es development with the spread of a market culture, and a "self-fashioning" subjectivity in contradistinction to an ethic of "global citizenship.".
