Global integration and ‘axial ages’

April 28th, 2016 · No Comments


The post today gives a useful way to think about world history without the confusing notion of ‘civilizations’.

http://history-and-evolution.com/appendix/appendix.htm The appendix of WHEE online gives a complete outline of the mainline ‘macro sequence’ from the early Neolithic (conjectural) to the present.

The way to understand the double process, directionality and synchronous parallelism, is to think in terms of a minimax process: the sequence is setting direction but it is also performing integration. The balance of the two produces the effect we see: move toward an integrated global system with a minimum of interaction.
