CafeLitt 131: The Clash of Civilizations: Part II

Thu 30 Jul 2009, 19:00, by Hesam Ghasemi, at Bistro Oxford :2170 Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, Montreal (Map)

"Spurred by modernization, global politics is being reconfigured along cultural lines. Peoples and countries with similar cultures are coming together. Peoples and countries with different cultures are coming apart. Alignments defined by ideology and superpower relations are giving way to alignments defined by culture and civilization. Political boundaries are increasingly redrawn to coincide with cultural ones: ethnic, religious, and civilization. Cultural communities are replacing Gold War blocs, and the fault lines between civilizations are becoming the central lines of conflict in global politics. "
Samuel P. Huntington

"Sam Huntington, one of the west most eminent political scientist; presents a challenging framework for understanding the realities of global politics in the next century. The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order is one of the most important books to have emerged since the end of the Cold War."
Henry A. Kissinger

"An intellectual tour de force: bold, imaginative, and provocative. A seminal work that will revolutionize our understanding of international affair."
Zbigniew Brzezinski

In this session, "A world of civilizations, The Shifting Balance of Civilizations, The Emerging Order of Civilizations, Clashes of Civilizations and The Future of Civilizations" would be discussed.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
