  • March 2014
    Culturelink is pleased to publish the paper by Professor Vjeran Katunaric, member of the Culturelink Team, entitled Dancing and Calculating: Culturally Sustainable Development and Globalisation in Light of Two Paradigms of Sociocultural Evolution, which examines two paradigms of evolution, the transformational (Spencerian) and the variational / selectionist (Darwinian), along with their social theoretical counterparts. The paper deals with the concept of sustainable development, launched by the UN as an attempt at mediating, mostly on the grounds of ecological alarms, between the free-market and the statist policies. The author considers hybridization of the two paradigms as a proper conceptual foundation of sustainable development. On this premise, he expounds the concept of a culturally oriented sustainable development, arguing that hybrid developmental policies are more suitable for the purpose of a decent survival of most countries.
