Reimagining the State in a Global Space

(p.24) Chapter 2 Reimagining the State in a Global Space
The Emergence of Globalism

Or Rosenboim

Princeton University Press

This chapter examines perceptions of the state in a global context, arguing that the emergence of globalism encouraged mid-century thinkers to reimagine—but not abandon—the nation-state. In particular, it considers Raymond Aron’s proposals to reinterpret the political space of the nation-state in the post-war era and how the war experience formed his conceptualization of international relations. While the state remained for Aron the main bastion of individual liberty, he acknowledged its conceptual and structural insufficiency in the age of globalism. Aron’s interpretation of political ideologies in conversation with the sociologist Karl Mannheim and the philosopher Jacques Maritain led to the development of his loose and pluralistic vision of European unity held together by “political myth.” The chapter also compares Aron’s vision of world order with that of David Mitrany.

Keywords:   globalism, nation-state, Raymond Aron, political space, international relations, liberty, political myth, Jacques Maritain, world order, David Mitrany
