The term globalization was coined by the sociologist David Harvey in the 1970s to describe the development of global social systems.
The term is derived from the Greek word for “world,” which in turn means “nation” or “nation state.”
Harvey’s description of globalization is based on the historical and contemporary rise of international economic cooperation in the early twentieth century, which created an international economy that increasingly relied on large-scale trade, commerce, and international cooperation.
The concept of globalization was first used by economist Paul Romer in the 1960s, and the term is used in the context of globalization today.
The first definition of globalization that appeared in the 1990s was in the Oxford English Dictionary, which defines globalization as “the movement of people or things within and beyond the boundaries of a country or area.”
Romer’s definition of the term came to be used by sociologists who work in the field of sociological analysis.
According to Harvey, globalization is defined by a phenomenon of “an increase in the extent of cross-border interdependency between people in different countries, or between states or countries, over a period of time.”
Harvey also coined the term symbolic interactionism to describe sociological theories that view globalization as an extension of symbolic interaction.
Symbolic interaction is the concept that sociologically supports the idea that cultural, political, and social processes are interdependent, which is important to sociology because it helps us understand how people interact with one another.
For example, Harvey has argued that cultural values such as sexual identity are connected to a broader set of values such the “idea of individualism” and “individualism in general.”
According to this theory, cultural values and political values are interrelated and are not mutually exclusive.
According an article published in the Journal of Social Issues, Harvey uses symbolic interaction to understand the relationship between globalization and cultural values.
In this article, Harvey describes symbolic interaction in terms of cultural values, political values, and interdependence between cultural values through the theory of symbolic interdiction.
This theory describes how cultural values influence social behaviors, beliefs, and behaviors in the aggregate.
Harvey’s theory of symbolism interdictions is a key to understanding the rise of globalization.
Harvey defines symbolic inter-diction as “a process whereby one set of people becomes part of another set of persons through the use of symbolic means.”
In other words, symbolic interdict is a process by which one group becomes more interdependent with another group through the manipulation of symbolic forms and symbols, such as signs, symbols, symbols on clothing, symbols and images on posters, etc. Symbols and symbols are commonly used to define and control social behavior.
Harvey believes that cultural norms that regulate social behavior are created through cultural norms.
This is the case because these cultural norms are designed to regulate behavior and social behavior is a form of behavior that is defined in terms, such a symbolic interaction.
Harvey suggests that social norms are created by the development and maintenance of symbolic systems.
Harvey calls these systems the “culture of symbolic communication,” and he describes the creation of social norms as a process of cultural transmission.
The culture of symbolic transmission is an essential component of globalization, because it is an extension and continuation of cultural norms, which allows the development, maintenance, and modification of cultural forms.
The importance of symbolic behavior for globalization Harvey believes cultural norms to be key to globalization because they shape the global social system, which has a major impact on how people perceive the world.
According the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in the 21st century, globalization has created more opportunities for the development to occur.
This has led to the expansion of economic growth, the development or growth of services, employment, and other social benefits.
The UNFPA explains that economic growth has made people more aware of the opportunities that globalization has provided.
The development of services has created an economic environment that facilitates the creation and dissemination of knowledge.
Additionally, globalization has created the capacity to exchange knowledge, information, and technology.
Finally, the growth of knowledge and information has led people to value personal freedom and autonomy over traditional cultural norms and the role of traditional cultures.
The growth of globalized societies has created a global community and the creation or development of a global society is one of the key goals of globalization theory.
This concept is discussed in greater depth in the next section of this article.
