The Human Situation in the Age of Globalization

The idea of globalization is produced as the inevitable future of people and societies around the world, but it raises many questions which answers are unclear or unsatisfactory.

Analyzing concepts such as "globalism", "globality", "globalization", "modernity", "postmodernity" etc, the paper looks for answers to the questions of what is to be globalized and whether the individual gains anything from this process or is simply drawn into it.
Key words: globalization, globality, globalism, modernity, postmodernity, panopticon, synopticon, global risk society.
