The World to Itself. Open Lecture on Global Transition

Marin Dinu
Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies

Abstract. In this study I aim at designing an image with more shades of difference upon the globalisation, from its ordinary meanings to the institutional type explicative models. There is no doubt that the enterprise is not as temerarious as it is necessary. The confusions as well as the theoretical counterviews have rational determinants. In a vicious manner, the reasoning of the texts about globalisation most often serves non-epistemic causes. The analysis of the ideas that are in circulation cannot be deprived of the critical perspective. And that happens because, truly, the most significant ideas about globalisation are launched from the geopolitics field. The perseverance of the scientific steps seems to be extremely fragile. What puts a scarce mark on the scientific area of the globalisation issue is a politics parameter: the control of the global powers. Therefore, the confusions’ perpetuation has become a defining feature in the debates about globalisation. The stake is to strengthen the image that the globalisation does not change but preserves the powers’ control in the world. Namely it represents a kind of continuity of essence in the powers’ system, though it creates the impression that is something else, maybe even a qualitative change.

The right hypothesis from which it must be started when understanding the globalisation is the idea of order. The world in itself can be understood only by relating to the idea of order. Thus, the ordering principle is essential for understanding. The world’s evolution is explained through the ordering principle. The history’s phenomenology has meaning beginning with the ordering principle. In these highlights, my analysis points out the content of the globalisation as a different reordering of the world. The globalisation is a breach represented by the change of the ordering principle. It has, in fact, approximations in the world. The globalisation is hardly knocking off.

Keywords: ordering principle; harmonious cooperation; globalisation approximation; paradigm change; second modernity.
