Culture and Socium and Culture. Problems of Globalisation

Gregory Pomerants (Moscow)
Stages of Globalisation

  1. Extension of social units, connected by common power and common belief. First empires and tribal resistance against globalisation.
  2. Imperial-confessional stage of globalisation. Rise of four cultural worlds.
  3. Rivalry of Islamic and Christian globalisation projects in medieval times. Success of Christian globalisation as socio-economical progress.
  4. The fourth, electronic-financial stage of the globalisation process and anti-global movement.
  5. The problem of global terror.
  6. Necessity of changes in the character of globalisation. Global arrangements cannot be fulfilled by just one of the cultural worlds ignoring the other ones.
