Political Philosophy on Globalization - Dictionary of Arguments

Edwards I 60
Globalization/Political Philosophy/climatology/Edwards: Marshall McLuhan long ago described the “global village,” the shrinkage of space and time through printing, literacy, and mass media.(1) More recently, Manuel Castells defined the global economy as one “whose core components have the institutional, organizational, and technological capacity to work as a unit in real time, or chosen time, on a planetary scale” through information and communication infrastructures.(2) Every chapter in a recent survey of the literatures on political, economic, and cultural globalization systematically addressed the role of communication infrastructures.(3) Similar examples could be multiplied ad infinitum. In an important variation on this theme, Martin Hewson proposed a notion of “informational globalism.” The concept refers simultaneously to systems and institutions for transmitting information around the world, and to systems and institutions for creating information about the world as a whole.(4)
