Social and Anthropological Background for Addressing Xenophobia.

Research output


Contemporary humanity is facing a new form of exclusion. If earlier protest caused total power and economic exploitation, today in place violent ways of assembling individuals in the collective body came new media technology. Globalization turns the new totalitarianism of planetary scale. The question arises, what does it mean to “be together”? Is the totality of the citizens, every four years, taking part in the elections, or something more-for example, people, nation or just fellow, existing according to the formula: live and not bother others live. It would be good to connect on a spiritual basis, as suggested by Russian philosophers of unity, but until the time is not ripe, should create more realistic projects. Today human Association are not built on spiritual unity, and at the organizational basis and fewer rely on solidarity. Your problem is the recognition of the other, which is not a romantic fiction, and lives and works near to us in the context of a modern multi-ethnic society. It cannot be an absolute skeptic, of course, if it is not being driven into a corner, such as paring down his social rights, wages, and forces other think, drink, eat and dress, as do representatives of a big nation. The involvement of another is not only in the plane of the rational negotiation and political treaties, but also at the level of everyday communication, which is the best form of hospitality.
