A critical and multidisciplinary approach to globalization and its problems. In the first section, having contemplated the problem from several possible points of view, globalization is considered for its cultural, economic and political perspectives. The second part looks at the new institutional and social actors involved while the third section identifies some of the problems tackled from a philosophical perspective. Finally an attempt is made to identify actors and conflictual lines within the process of globalization itself. [Publisher's Text]
