    Some Anthropological Aspects of Globalization.Jelena Djuric - 2002 - Filozofija I Društvo 2002 (19):103-115.
    Awareness about the role of anthropological perspective places each anthropological research within the context of globalization, pointing at the need for making the difference between concepts of globalization as the description and as the political project. This differentiation represents a frame of the research of globalization phenomena in order to understand their influence on concrete people in a concrete situation. The importance of the role of concepts in ubiquitous transformation of human lives is also confirmed in the paper. This is (...)

    Identity Paradoxes.Jelena Djuric - 2010 - Filozofija I Društvo 21 (2):275-292.
    The article considers paradoxical nature of identity that emerges from: 1) the very concept of identity whose abstract generality unites various and even opposite features; 2) the processual nature of reality that is easier to express in the poetical metaphors or abstract principles than in unambiguous conceptual networks; 3) the oppose relationship between being and knowledge, mind and matter, subject and object, self and personality. Entangled in the labyrinth which evade efforts to be conceptually defined, the modern thinking of identity (...)

    The Processes of Identity Integration.Jelena Djuric - 2009 - Filozofija I Društvo 20 (2):153-176.
    Despite inevitable elusiveness of its meanings, explication of the persisting issues of identity remains the challenge for contemporary humans. Inability to achieve full insight into its complexity points to the need to corelate basic ideas as the essential way of self-cognition and self-awareness, which represent the meaning, value and the purpose of humanity. The development of global processes can, in the same spirit, be viewed as a contribution to the conscious transformation and integration of identities.

    Cultural Identity and Democracy Standards: Integration Processes in Serbia.Jelena Djuric - 2007 - Filozofija I Društvo 18 (3):149-165.
    This text is aimed at showing that particularity of different cultural identities is compatible with the generality of standards - the differences can be organically included in the whole which gives them the meaning. Global meaning of the identity transformation is in the need for freedom and real democracy, that means overcoming mechanisms of instrumental reasoning and power usurpation. The process of cultural transformations requires deliberate choices which provide us identity and value to our humane standards.

    Identity and Interculturality: Serbia as a Place of Interweaving of Balkans and Europe.Jelena Djuric - 2008 - Filozofija I Društvo 19 (3):217-232.
    This article is an attempt to find a suitable concept for possible reconstruction and integration of various cultural identities, which are diverse and internally layered. The view on issues of identity taken from Serbia - the country in 'transition' faring through different temptations in search for an appropriate identity which could mean a chance for integrity in processes of identity changes - is specific in as much as it could consider itself as a subject of history and not only as (...)

    The Backyard of Transition.Jelena Djuric - 2004 - Filozofija I Društvo 2004 (25):261-270.
    The reflection on the current period of transition in Serbian society indicates deep contradictions between the urge for European integration and the delay of institutional transformation that fuse with the indolence of a large part of the people. The crisis of values is conspicuous almost everywhere. Continuous changes have had hard consequences on Serbian society. During these changes moral patterns, values, spirituality were destroyed, rebuilt, and lost again. Hence, Serbian society now lies on the ruins of past 'traditions', general values, (...)
