In relation to world society as the scene of economic gam- bitplayed by Institute for International Relations. All rights sense that we can distinguish between early mod- ernism from the postmodernism, globalisation is an abstract concept. Today's globalization, modernism and postmodernism have became common scientists think that there is a difference between modernism and modernity. Part 1: Background and Theory: Postmodernism and Globalization. Postmodernism looks at the relations between all things, showing that.
This action is called textual interaction.
Postmodernism and Globalization
Hedgier Dunn,believed that the reason for the fall of Walter Benyamin, like Scott Lash, believed in modernity is that humans haves lost their own sight in the course postmodernism Entidifferezierung that is called a culture of their domination on nature, and had faltered in correctly paradigm and has four parts.
First he referred to the kinds of identifying what is true and what is untrue. Scientists believe culture subjects like; ethical and theoretical aesthetics. Secondly that postmodernism is reactive against modernity that appeared he referred to relation between cultural order and social order.
Thirdly he referred to cultural economic elements; condition of Postmodernism is a mental method that questioned utopian produce and consumption, cultural institutions and cultural ideas, thoughts and modernity values. Thus modernism is faced goods. And fourthly he referred to methods to with conflicts and schisms within itself.
And the context of postmodernism itself was created appearance should be searched on the infertility in final and from within modernity. Eagleton believe postmodernism Abdolmajid Arfaei Moghaddam et al. And according to measured for depth, expanse, speed, and effect rate in the interpretation of Giddenspostmodernism is the same as contexts of continental, interregional and also action networks, modernity only that it had started to understand itself Dunn, integration and power use.
First use is internationalization, meaning historical, political and mental event which had been continuing development and extension in international exchanges. Second since about years and postmodernism is a discursive and a use is liberalization, meaning free economic trends and without philosophical period that involves itself with the modernity much interference of government economical integration.
Modernity itself has always been faced with crisis and had Third use is universalism, meaning it is to be interpreted with questioned itself. Thus postmodernism with its self critique special goals and programs for human system cultural outlook, challenged modernity and appeared to be the integration. Fourth use it is westernization, meaning influence fundamental crisis of modernity.
Many scientists, of the western culture is transferred into other countries. Fifth postmodernism appearance based on three factors. First is use is deterritorialization meaning geographical boundaries lose egoism, which includes test, analysis and self involvement, their earlier significance Baylis, Important characteristics of this capitalism, rationalism, industrialism, bureaucracy, etc.
But Robert Cox Baylis,50 is believed an important The second factor sees a shift in philosophy movements and characteristic of globalization is that it involved producing development from egoism to existentialism that interpreted into international, new division of labor and new migration of north inevitable imperatives, because in the existentialism framework, to south which bring about a new competitive environment and the concept of active value and ethical world changed to internationalization of the counties.
In this way, countries mythical and empty concepts. And characteristics of this undergo changes due to globalization institutions. Holding existentialism are doubt of ultimate reality, internal experiences different views are many other scientists like Kit Nashpromotion and individual selection rights, that all found in the who focused on communication in globalization in the postmodernism thoughts. Nihilism is third factor and the context of modernism, postmodernism and cultural and effectiveness of postmodernism, and the result of rationality and economic aspects.
Economic globalization also seems to egoism philosophy and existentialism is nihilism. These in thoughts, attitudes, interests, culture, economy, politics and capital corporations created active states of capitalism based on social a aspects.
Postmodernism has been criticized by a set of rules and criteria. And they created whatever supportive, intelligentsia and scientists, because they know postmodernism necessary conditions needed there for making inroad into the more as a theoretical aspect. But postmodernism defenders global and transnational financial markets. Western culture in believe that in the world there is no such thing the real global the modernity era is accompanied at least two characteristics, perspective, because the actual reality cannot interpret from our namely general and globalism culture, which are promoted as view point Baylis, And Western culture influenced Globalization Concept and Roots such things like special culture in organically based way of life Globalization is an issue of historical importance; is meta- in a certain country and also in the form of its unit set-up and national and substantive.
David Heldintegration. In fact globalization is a postmodernism postulates. Globalization should not be understood as a about globalization. One group is of the belief that globalization singular condition or as a linear process. It must be viewed as a has been an on-going process which has been happening over multi-dimensional phenomenon; included diverse cultural, the span of the last four centuries.
The other group believes that technological, environmental and political denominations and globalization is a recent process which has been unfolding over each of these spheres involve amplitude of patterns, relations the last three decades.
It has important indexes of modernity, universality and other come to the point where events in one society or one part of the universalism elements which are considered as irrevocable world more have considerable effects on others regions and processes. And as always happens in the case of a revolution, societies Baylis, The first view point belongs to Malcolm Waters which link distant localities in such a way that local happenings in the globalization issue.
Heldin his definition centuries, but the middle of the second century of development, of globalization, believed it was whichever process that brought this phenomenon has been disorganized. Globalization started in about changes in relations, organization, space and communal the sixteenth century and continues until now. The Second point associations and they evolve. These changes have been of view sees the beginning of globalization as that which Abdolmajid Arfaei Moghaddam et al.
Max and informational society Giddens,theory of the world Weber Abraham, in his discussion of rationality, system Wallerstein,economic globalization theory enumerated a number of characteristics for it, such as Walters,world era and globalization theory Albrow, impersonation of social relations, purification of calculationmyth of globalization thought Hisrt and Thompson, techniques, the importance of increasing specialized knowledgethe globalization as a different attitude and new and the development of intellectual control based on techniques awareness Robertson,new realism and hegemonic in both natural and social processes.
Thus globalization of Durkheim Abraham, draws our attention to the the s decade was accompanied by scientific aware-nesses structural differences in this regard which means about the dangerous repercussions of full speed technology, industrialization requires a fundamental distinction between population explosion and environmental damage.
For example capitalization and mass production with local production and McLuhan referred to the role of the mass-media reproduction. Industrialization transfers the patterns of extension and concepts transference by which it included distinction to other areas of social life which are compatible with transportation technology and communication technology. The industrial centers functionally. These structural developments important characteristics of the mass-media include transference orientate the values towards individualism, secularism, of speedy information and tribalism culture extension waters, globalism and rationality which eventually result in Parsons Globalization in Modernism and Postmodernism Processes Abraham, believes that social changes embrace Most of explanations about globalization engaged only with transcendental, logical and dynamic properties which lead them recent developments, and have considered it superficially, and in this direction; this logic and dynamism hinges on coordination analyzed it quite weakly and are therefore unsuitable for and adaptation.
That is to say, the ability of an organism for presenting a truly comprehensive and encompassing view point adaptation with its environment, will override modernization of globalization and the complex multi-faceted processes it bring and the existing frontiers such as social status, ethnic or sexual about among countries of the world.
Thus firstly we should have barriers and cooperation increasingly depends on people's a true recognition and understanding of globalization and its capability and their functional competence. According to attendant processes. Then we have to scrutinize the integral Parson's viewpoint, globalization merely means that the societies relationship that exists between modernism, postmodernism and move toward a common evolutional cycle and accomplish globalization. Among the important factors that have a profound mechanical integrity and unity.
A modern and different set of operative conditions inevitably seem new view point is of globalization as a result of the western to prevail. Globalization should consider two views of classic modernization project, and another is that globalization is as a scientists and contemporary thinkers. The difference between process resulting due to globality and superficiality of the these two views it is that the classic scientists talked about on modern capitalism system, and this effect has become the cultural and sociological views whereas, contemporary increasingly widespread in communication extension and scientists emphasized on economic and political aspects of the cultural disorder after the Second World War Zahedi.
The first view point is held by classic scientists such as; Some theorists like Nash have focused on the Marx, Durkheim, Weber, Counts, Parsons and Zemial, and relation of globalization with some concepts like modernism and others, who look to the sociological and cultural aspect. The post-modernism and have focused attention to the economic and second point of view has its supporters in new scientists such as; cultural aspects.
Fukuyama, Waltz, Cox and others who prefer to focused on the Others analysts like David Harvey reason that political and economic aspects of globalization Zahedi,globalization affected the landscape of the postmodern era. And this new form of capitalism has been integration. Karl Marx Walters, believed in globalizing described as fixable postmodernism. Globalization not a new modernization processes which means globalization has greatly phenomenon in a capitalism system.
But fixable postmodernism increased the power and of capitalists to provide new markets. August Counts understands globalization as the Thus we have transference of thoughts expedited by positivity thoughts and ideas that consequently make possible satellites considerably empowering the potential influence of Abdolmajid Arfaei Moghaddam et al. The Fixable postmodernism produce a thinks of globalization in terms of integration theory of postmodernism culture, which in it has aesthetics, quick goods societies and social division of labor in which the expertise of exchange, manipulation in opinions and preferences in the highly skillful people and labor force are divided into different culture of people by means of propaganda.
It characteristics can professions. With the expansion of science and technology, be said to refer to instability and superficial thoughts instead of systems of professions undergo change and will lead to deep-rooted, insightful thoughts and consequently this bring increasing job mobility.
This process is reinforced through mounting and differences of methods instead of authenticity, higher education and will help create proper social sub-structure.
Harvey analyzed two concepts prominent secretary in contemporary capitalism, that is closer to of modernism and postmodernism.
He claimed that the root of it a Marxist attitude. According to this attitude, the central core of is in analysis of art, language and human psyche, which results globalization is to be placed on consumption and service from evolution in attitude, conceptions and human industries more than financial capital.
Industrial products in a understanding of time and space. These deep effects and non organized capitalism and post-modernity era are believed to differences left a deep impression on postmodernism Nozari, have more economic with publication of symbols or signs of In the modernism and postmodernism toward fundamental changes in process, values and subjects become manifest with modern social life.
In fact, the trend of modernism started after the society, postmodernism and post-industrialism. Renaissance and rationalism era and ends in postmodernism in Waters views globalization as a sudden acceleration the middle of the twentieth century.
Now globalization moves in in historical transformations of human life. That is, globalization tandem with post-modernization, meaning with development is associated with modernization and development of and the attendant extension of electronic media in political, synchronous capital and it is a recent and modern process which economical, social, and cultural aspects, it has became even accompanies other social processes such as post- more informed in the latest modern cycle, that quicken with industrialization, post-modernism and deconstruction of capitalism origination renovation, collective media capitalism.
Hence, the trend of post these societies will become like each other in the long run. Peter modernization of societies and globalization of projects depend Berger and Huntington view globalization as a constant upon the social, economic, cultural and political states of issue which has a rapid and compressed state and embodies a society.
It has also brought about a new wave of modernization challenge which brings about modernity. One of the most which promotes assimilation of cultural frames, local and important challenges is pluralism which leads to the overthrow national integration, development of international markets and of established traditions and the opening of new doors with trade. Countries have been drawn closer due welcome to regard to multiple choices beliefs, values and ways of life.
At worse, it is simply the embrace of evil. Consider the popularity of serial killers in postmodern times. In America, Britain, and Russia, professional serial killers, and aspiring candidates, are capturing headlines like never before. In the film Silence of the Lambsa cannibal psychopath is presented as a witty, cultured, charismatic genius who alone is able to direct the hunt for another serial killer.
Silence of the Lambs is one in only three films in the history of the Oscars to take all five top awards best picture, best director, best actor, best actress, best screenplay in the same year. Serial killers may always have been with us but never before have they had such a dominant hold over the popular imagination.
The African mercenary is an iconic image: The image refers to a moment of barbarism, having no reference to the chain of events which lead to it, while depriving the African of a voice. The Benetton campaign encapsulates the past, present, and future in a single time frame offering images which conjure historic, futuristic, and apocalyptic elements within a grammar of race. In most of these images the diversity of national culture is reduced to a stylized, hackneyed individual.
Difference is commodified and a portrait of plurality is produced which designates the colorful individuals within the image to be a race apart. This is postmodern advertising as social conscience: However, passive traditionalism and militant formalist traditionalism are both easy prey to postmodernism. Postmodernism induces panic in all forms of passive and militant outlooks and thus not only renders them ineffective against its all-pervasive nihilism but makes them self-destructive.
In other words, postmodernism co-opts passivity and fundamentalism to promote its own goals. Thus, the only cultural survival kit for those who would choose to remain alive within living traditions, retain their identity and distinctive moral and ethical vision of themselves and the purpose of their existence, is to understand postmodernism, to see through the limitations of passive minimalist tradition and the futile trap of militant fundamentalism.
For the worldviews of the non-West the only option is to transcend meaninglessness through living consciously, creatively making and mending. This is a difficult and complex agenda, yet it is the worthwhile enterprise that can offer us any kind of sustainable future. At the heart of culture and its traditional forms is a distinctive moral and ethical understanding, worldview.
The Matrix of Postmodernism and Globalization
Traditional culture in all its forms is about expression and communication of this moral vision, about working out its contemporary significance and relevance for a people with a strong historical identity. For the non-West, history will really end and postmodernism will rule unassailed unless its worldviews become the medium through which economy, politics, social, industrial, and ecological conventions are negotiated.
Culture is not an optional extra that can be indulged in after working hours in the privacy of the home, or on certain high days and holidays.
If that is what culture becomes, then it is the rotting corpse of a dead system of thought and understanding, the dried husk of a worldview that no longer interacts with the real world we inhabit. It is not just one worldview, but every worldview that makes up the rich mosaic of the non-West that must be brought back to life if the non-European cultures are to defy and resist postmodernism and the seductive path into total dependency and the ever expanding decay it offers.
Moral and ethical considerations are never easy: Becoming centered in the moral and ethical concepts of non-western worldviews cannot mean renouncing old interpretations or abandoning all that is of the West. It does, however, require recognizing and transcending the limitations of both as part of the process of taking responsibility for the present and creating a future that answers to and is a function of what non-western cultures really believe is of enduring value and meaning.
For a postmodernist illustration of the points made above, watch critically the Hollywood release The Matrix starring Kenu Reeves. First, the mode of thought and philosophy that predominates the media in any culture cannot be viewed in isolation from the social strata that predominate in the current mode of production.
For example, it is common knowledge that the capitalist mode of production corresponded until recently to liberal thought which reveres science and the scientific method derived from the Industrial Revolution.
That mode of production was predominated by industrial entrepreneurs. But with the transformation of the capitalist mode of production, and the omnipotent predominance of financial capital in the socio-economic structure, the financial support given to the mainstream media changed in meaning.
This financial support was no longer for the purpose of spreading liberal thought, but for spreading the culture best understood by financial capital, i. Here it should be emphasized that Postmodernism rejects all sorts of totalities, not just rational scientific thought which revolves around the Correspondence Theory of Truth which holds that there is a rational way to know the truth. Thus Postmodernism condemns this rational way, and denies the existence of any truth outside the subjective realm of perceptions.
Postmodernism wages war on the mind as well. Only thus can we comprehend the accurate statement that Postmodernism rejects the possibility of knowledge.
In the beginning the socialist bloc was compared to totalitarian regimes like Nazism and Fascism. Then these regimes, which deemed themselves the genuine expression of the collective consciousness of their societies, became the biggest excuse to reject knowledge, the mind, and totalities in general.
Thus this inhuman mode of thought called Postmodernism was partly generated by the Cold War and the strategy of containment [of communism]. Second, postmodernist thought is ultra-Pragmatic thought.
Postmodernism and Globalization | Peter Leithart
It displays a different type of interaction with given circumstances in the imperialist centers than it does with the same set of circumstances where they exist in the peripheries. We can nevertheless delineate a few basic aspects in its operation: Here the first contradiction arises.
Postmodernism views such technology as the optimal means of communication, and does not fail to use it to propagandize itself. Yet it must continuously tackle the challenge that Information Technology is related to knowledge and its possibility and the corollary that it is becoming increasingly difficult to prevent one from obtaining this knowledge and using the same technology to disseminate alternative points of view.
Therefore, this contradiction is overcome by making sure that the Internet for example, initially created by the U. Department of Defense in the Cold War, contains a disproportional amount of postmodernist themes and voices to lord over other views. This generates the second paradox. There is an acute imperialist awareness of the gravity of the situation regarding population trends in the world today. The problems resulting from such postmodernist influence in the centers will also necessarily affect the ability of the ruling classes there to keep the situation under control.
This is the only socio-economic theme discussed in the article above. Postmodernism is indeed the ideology of globalization see the previous issue of the Free Arab Voice at: It is true that one of the tenets of Postmodernism is its vehement insincere defense of Multiculturalism.
This pseudo-argument may even be used to support fundamentalist movements when it is politically expedient. Yet these are but the external shells of democracy that were tailored to fit Third World rulers and classes tending to the best interest of financial capital, as is the case in Jordan. In spite of the great technological revolution we are witnessing nowadays, industrial production remains tied to a mode of consumption which primarily meets the needs of financial capital.
On the other hand, technological applications are favored which expand demand for corporate products. Thus it is the extent to which a given discovery or invention generates cash flow, not its inherent relevance to increasing human welfare, that counts the most. No wonder then, in recent years, financial support for large scientific projects that do not directly or indirectly benefit the flow of capital has greatly diminished.
For there is no room for science for the sake of science in the postmodernist age, or maybe there is no room for science at all.
