This article gives arguments contrary to the (glorious) establishment of One World, in itself homogeneous. The corollary of this conclusion, which is reached by recurring to some ‘hybrid’ concepts - such as Glocalization and Global Culture among others - is a more general premise of method, which invites scholars to exclude each kind of narrow mono-disciplinary approach, from the analytical tools used in characterising contemporary global phenomena. (International) political philosophy has the task of investigating new conceptual tools which enable it to deal with newly emerging national and international issues. Additional categories such as “moral minority” and “gender sensitivity” could be taken under more careful consideration from social scientists on behalf of a proper definition of emancipatory discourses and policies aiming to durable and cross-borders effects.
