The problems and issues arising from globalization are difficult to resolve, in part because our ways of conceptualizing the conflicts and responding to them are inadequate. This book fills this gap, conceiving of globalization as a consequence of economic, political, technological, scientific, and cultural changes. A. Pablo Iannone provides a taxonomy of globalization processes, investigates the consequences of each, and formulates a comprehensive approach for dealing with them.

While his emphasis is philosophical, this is not a single-discipline book. Rather, it belongs at the intersection of philosophy, economics, political science, and technology. Its discussions address issues concerning globalization and correlate the processes of fragmentation and dislocation in a realistic manner.

Iannone focuses on concrete and current cases, from the global economic and financial issues posed by the multi-centered nature of contemporary business and technology, through the pressures of ever increasing information overload across the planet. He explores the environmental and social challenges associated with current Amazonian development and its significance to weather patterns on Earth. He considers the issues surrounding the use of robots in war from Pakistan through Mexico, and the militarization of space. In short, the approach, while based on theoretical concerns, is solidly grounded in highly practical applications, which are global in their implications.

About the Author:

A. Pablo Iannone is professor of philosophy at Central Connecticut State University and has authored eight philosophy monographs, most notably Transaction’s Seeking Balance.

 

Review:

Seeking Balance is a broad yet rigorous exploration of globalization from the perspective of a scientifically informed philosopher. A. Pablo Iannone introduces the reader to some of the most theoretical aspects of this topic by reflection on actual cases. Although many of these have arisen in Latin America, they all have global import and demand our attention. Clearly written, this book will make a valuable contribution to the study of a phenomenon at the intersection of politics, economics, philosophy, and the social sciences.”

—Susana Nuccetelli, St. Cloud State University

"This timely, groundbreaking book is simply the best work available on globalization.  While covering a diverse array of topics and recognizing the diversity of globalizing processes, the author develops innovative methodologies for developing comprehensive theories, ethical evaluations, and policy analyses. Richly filled with cases, illustrations, and dialogues, the book is ideal for classroom and a must for scholars, practitioners, and interested citizens."

—Robert Paul Churchill, George Washington University

“This book is highly recommended for its topic, approach and new perspectives on the challenging problems of globalization and policy making. Iannone presents his views with clarity and at a welcome pace.”
