In today’s world, there are serious disputes over the definition and thoughts of globalization at all levels. The dispute is so intense that it can reach the point of confusion. British scholar Anthony Giddens believes that globalization is merely the expansion of modernity from society to the world, because “modernity is globalizing in its essence¹”. In the past few decades, anyone who did not know about globalization, or did not talk about it, almost meant that he or she is outdated and ill-informed.
In today’s world, there are too many specious explanations and too many one-sided understandings for globalization. What should we think of the future path of globalization?
How should we adapt to the great challenges of anti-globalization?
