Between universalism and relativism. Philosophical basic problems of intercultural management
In the context of globalization the question of (economic) management behavior vis-à-vis other cultures becomes increasingly important; i.e. the question how firms, companies deal with other cultures. This includes the question of whether a meaningful form of unity is possible in the face of the multitude of different cultures and world views. The papers in this volume address the question which problems have to be solved in order to keep up claims that can be universalized and which protect and guarantee the existence of local, specific needs. The papers provide answers to critical questions originating in the field of economy.

Keywords: intercultural management, universalism and relativism, relativism and universalism, economy and cultures
