A Concept of the Global to Conceive Global Governance. Four Metaphorical Proposals
This paper suggests four metaphors to correct our habitual way of thinking about globalization. It begins with the idea that the world can be understood more effectively based on the properties of gases, rather than liquids, secondly, it analyzes the properties and effects of the excessive exposure in which we find ourselves when interdependency is in force, It maintains that our world lacks outlying areas, in the sense that nothing, in fact, remains outside, peripheral or completely isolated, and as a normative principle, we cannot consider anything absolutely exterior, and finally, It presents the idea that we live in a world belonging to everyone and to no one, where piracy holds great explanatory force.
