    European Cosmopolitanism in Question.Roland Robertson & Anne Sophie Krossa (eds.) - 2012 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    This collection of essays, featuring a line-up of leading international scholars, argues that most work on cosmopolitanism uses a normative model, rather than fully interrogating the issue empirically, comparatively and globally.

    From Republican Virtue to Global Imaginary: Changing Visions of the Historian Polybius.David Inglis & Roland Robertson - 2006 - History of the Human Sciences 19 (1):1-18.
    The ancient Greek historian and political scientist Polybius is not as well known in the present day as figures such as Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato and Aristotle. This is in part due to his having lived in the Hellenistic period, an epoch often thought to be characteristic of Greek cultural and political decline, rather than in the earlier ‘golden age’ of Greek intellectual life in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE. Yet Polybius’s ideas have been of profound importance in modern western (...)

    The Ecumenical Analytic: ‘Globalization’, Reflexivity and the Revolution in Greek Historiography.Roland Robertson & David Inglis - 2005 - European Journal of Social Theory 8 (2):99-122.
    ‘Globalization’ has become in recent years one of the central themes of social scientific debates. Social theories of globalization may be regarded as specific academic and analytic manifestations of wider forms of ‘global consciousness’ to be found in the social world today. These are ways of thinking and perceiving which emphasize that the whole world should be seen as ‘one place’, its various geographically disparate parts all being interconnected in various complex ways. In this article we set out how both (...)

  10. Globalization Discourse.Roland Robertson - 2021 - ProtoSociology 38:172-187.
    Set in the immediate context of the recent UN conference on climate change in Glasgow and the sudden emergence of the variant, Omicron, this paper involves discussion of the present state of discourse concerning globalization in the broadest sense. It begins by contrasting the approaches and substance of two specific books: Globalization Matters by Manfred Steger and Paul James and Grave New World by Stephen King. The difference between the two books is brought into sharp relief by the economism of (...)

    Populism and Worldwide Turbulence.Roland Robertson - 2020 - ProtoSociology 37:152-164.
    This contribution consists in an attempt to make sense of one central aspect of the present worldwide turbulence, one which might well be called the contemporary, perfect, global storm. A pivotal problem that will be interrogated is the issue of the circumstances that have produced this phenomenon in most parts of the world, although it should be emphasized that the term populism is, more often than not, applied to the Western world rather than the East or, for the most part, (...)

    Civilization.Roland Robertson - 2006 - Theory, Culture and Society 23 (2-3):421-427.
    It is necessary to distinguish between civilization as a sociocultural complex on the one hand, and civilization as a process, on the other. This is illustrated by invoking the work of Norbert Elias. For Elias, the civilizing process consisted in the way in which what were, historically, constraints on human behaviour became internalized, and is a process that takes different forms in different cultures. On the other hand, at the centre of civilization as sociocultural complex was the question concerning the (...)
