Disintegration of the Universal in the Global Era

Abstract: This paper raises questions about an invisible characteristic of the globalization the lack of universality. There is a deep crisis in the very heart of human rationality -- crisis both ontological and epistemological: crisis of conceptuality. The contemporary individual has lost his in-dividable essence because now he is incapable of making identification and self-identification. The crisis is deeper than the crises of postmodern thinking, because it is a crisis in a crisis.

Key words: globalization, identification, self-identification, postmodern, concept
