Amerika felfedezése és az új globális rend
Megjelenés dátuma: 2015
In this essay I try to draw some parallelisms between the 16th century, the beginning of the process of globalization, and that of the 21th century, which can be conceived as the beginning of its definitive termination. The comparison is made on the basis of a 16-century Spanish theologian, Francisco de Vitoria. My main argument is that two of his key-concepts – the ius gentium and the just war, respectively – provided a well-founded basis to treat properly the most serious conflicts in that century, whereas in our age we lack even these concepts to tackle properly the fundamental problems of our age.
