‘Globalization’ names a complex of conjectures and hypotheses about an emerging social, cultural, political, and economic reality.

These conjectures form more a complex of associations than a consistent and coherent system of concepts.This emerging ‘global’ reality has its roots in modernity, but differs from it in several ways.

Whether the era of globality is more of a continuation or more of a break with modernity is disputed, however.
