Summary / Abstract:

ENTwo planes of theoretical thinking about globalization processes, globalization and world system theories (I. Wallerstein, E. Hobsbawm, A. Appadurai, F. Dussel) and the conceptualization of the postmodern condition (J. Baudrillard, F. Jameson, Z. Bauman), are discussed in this article. The theorists of the first trend usually base constructions of globalization processes on empirical data, concrete historical, sociological and cultural anthropological research; while postmodern theorists explain the nature of dominating discursive practice and imagine the present consumer world of “late capitalism" as one that has lost reference to reality. The author of the article investigates what the connections are between these planes and what the theoretical prospects are to understand national and cultural identity. The importance of J. Derrida’s deconstruction of “Europeanness” as well as the meaning of V. Kavolis’ civilizational analysis based on the idea of the polilogue of civilizations and cultures to the understanding of national and cultural identity is stressed. A new theoretical image of national and cultural identity becomes more visible while being understood as a certain multiculturalism, a heterogeneous homogeneity that survives while changing and has a possibility to stand up against monological and conflicting ethnicity.
