Three scenarios for globalisation. A view from cultural semiotics



Göran Sonesson



Using the concept of the auto-model, this text describes global society as a device people use to understand their relation to other cultures. Three scenarios are analysed in terms of a model each : first, we consider the hypertrophy of the Internal Other, which results from the displacements of sizeable populations. Next, we account for the globalisation of fashions, from food stuff to intellectual fads, in terms of a sender culture having the privilege of setting messages into world-wide circulation.

Trois scénarios pour le globalisation — du point de vue de la sémiotique culturelle



Göran Sonesson



Utilisant le concept d'auto-modèle, ce texte décrit la société globale en tant que dispositif employé par les gens pour comprendre leur relation à d'autres cultures. Trois scénarios sont analysés chacun en termes d’un modèle différent : d'abord, nous considérons l’hypertrophie de l'Autre interne, qui résulte des déplacements importants de populations. Ensuite, nous expliquons la globalisation des modes, des plats de cuisine aux mouvements intellectuels, à partir du concept de Culture de destinateur ayant le privilège de mettre des messages en circulation mondiale. En conclusion, nous considérons le cas dans lequel les états-nations cessent de fonctionner comme des cultures, quand les grandes entreprises prennent la relève. (Less)
