Abstract :
Values and norms are embedded in mostly implicit ideas of what is to be human. The anthropologies of teh various traditions agree in some respects but also differ greatly. Because of these differences and the supposed contradictions between worldviews religious pluralism is one of the main problems of our global culture. Do religious groups divide people and set them in opposition to one another or do they have enough in common to help create a truly human society? Does religious pluralism imply conflicts everywhere in teh world or does it allow solidarity and unity?
