Globalism and the Continuous Internal Equality with Oneself

Elena Bagina

Abstract


The processes of globalization that lead to loss of national and cultural peculiarities of big cities arouse a keen interest toward the idea of identity. Opposite tendencies develop as a reaction to globalization, including increase of national consciousness that implies a high interest toward national history, traditions and religion. The philosopher E. H. Erikson defined identity as continuous internal equality with oneself. This definition suits urban studies best of all.


Keywords
