The Globalization Debate: The Sceptics


  • Tadija Tadić



A devastating criticism of a hard core argumentation, stemming from skeptical authors, has strongly challenged an enthusiasm noticeable in most theoretical analyses of globalization, bringing to light many darker sides of the globalization phenomena. A detailed critical re-examination of their often unrealistic assumptions has presented a very serious challenge to globalists and has made room for the arising of the so called great globalization debate, which has started over time to shape the mainstream of the contemporary social philosophy. In this paper we are closely looking into the way in which sceptics realize their devastating criticism of globalists? argumentation.
