The end or the beginning of history, the omnipresent figure of simultaneity—the Lexus and the olive tree—and the related threat of belatedness—are we global enough?—are among its temporal registers.1 Globalism’s emergence as a problematic 2—a philosophical or political problem on which one must take a position that newly orients knowledge, cultural, theoretical, and narrative production—can also be read as a sign of the supersession of the global as space.
