Erick Valdes thinks that globalization is an existential attitude, a contemporary way of living. He presents an exegesis of globalization, seeking to prove that it is a consequence of a modern technological phenomenon, which implies new and renewed questions about the relationship between technology and ethics within the context of a time marked by the modified character of human action. Erick Valdes intends to demonstrate the need for a new foundation for what he calls "Post-Enlightened reason," namely, a set of paradigms through which the twenty-first century call out to human beings to think and act in a unique way. Therefore, the new problems generated by contemporary technology also require new forms of ethics, which can elucidate recent moral demands and unprecedented responsibilities, for instance, an ethic of ontological foundation. An ethical analysis that does not consider the preceding questions, is not able to give a full account of globalization. It is only a rhetoric and demagogic proposal. Undoubtedly, with this book Valdes makes an essential contribution to the understanding of our era. We cannot ignore his arguments.
