Political Theory and the Globalization Debate. An Assessment - The article offers an assessment (by sampling) of the evolution of political theory in the age of globalization, the phenomenon which has become the idol and the bugbear of present times. The diagnosis of the demise of the state is balanced by the one regarding the rise of new empires, the unifying perspectives of cosmopolitan constitutionalism, markets’ disorder and financial capital’s anarchy. Within this framework, we can observe the triple divorce between modernization and westernization (with the re-explosion of ethnic tribalism), modernization and secularization (with the return of religions), modernization and pacification (with the proliferation of violence in asymmetric wars and civil wars).
