The World and Its Globalization

Pieter Meurs

Globe, global, globalizing, globalization, globality: all these words have the same Latin root: globus: round mass, sphere, ball. The main characteristic of this etymological root and of its derivatives is the assumption that we are dealing with an object that can be articulated as such. But what are the limits of this object? Does it have limits? And how do we relate to it? This conversation explores the work of one of the most prominent thinker of globalization today: Jean-Luc Nancy.
