Abstract

This article reports a wide range of complementary or antinomic insights into the multi-layered globalizing process, in an attempt to understand its causes and significance. Different perceptions and assessments of its far-reaching consequences all over the world are picked out. The ambiguity of the high-technology revolution with potential transition from material to time values is contrasted with the self-destructive bases of self-interest policies, and the flagrant defeat of the modern economy among those excluded from planetary society. While on the surface it seems to be only a change of relations between the finance sphere and the "real economy", the more comprehensive and penetrating cognition of recent occurrences reveals a questioning of human values. New forms of social relationships will need to be imagined to define what human worth is.
