Uno dei massimi esperti di politica estera, consigliere dell’amministrazione americana ai tempi di Jimmy Carter, direttore degli Studi strategici e internazionali di Harvard, fondatore di Foreign Policy e autore di una ventina di saggi che hanno fatto la storia della geopolitica degli ultimi vent’anni.

Huntington citato in Morrapagg. Huntington citato in Morrapag. Muslim governments, even the bunker governments friendly to and dependent on the West, have been strikingly reticent when it comes to condemning terrorist acts against the West. On the other side, European governments and publics have largely supported and rarely criticized actions the United States has taken against its Muslim opponents, in striking contrast to the strenuous opposition they often expressed to American actions against the Soviet Union and communism during the Cold War.

In civilizational conflicts, unlike ideological ones, kin stand by their kin. The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism.

It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power. It is the West, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the universality of their culture and believe that their superior, if declining, power imposes on them the obligation to extend that culture throughout the world.

These are the basic ingredients that fuel conflict between Islam and the West. Islam And The West, p. In the post-Cold War world, for the first time in history, global politics has become multipolar and multicivilizational. During most of human existence, contacts between civilizations were intermittent or nonexistent. Then, with the beginning of the modern era, about A.

For over four hundred years, the nation states of the West — Britain, France, Spain, Austria, Prussia, Germany, the United States, and others — constituted a multipolar international system within Western civilization and interacted, competed, and fought wars with each other.

At the same time, Western nations also expanded, conquered, colonized, or decisively influenced every other civilization. During the Cold War global politics became bipolar and the world was divided into three parts.

A group of mostly wealthy and democratic societies, led by the United States, was engaged in a pervasive ideological, political, economic, and, at times, military competition with a group of somewhat poorer communist societies associated with and led by the Soviet Union.


Much of this conflict occurred in the Third World outside these two camps, composed of countries which juntington were poor, lacked political stability, were recently independent, and claimed to be nonaligned.

Frasi di Samuel P. Huntington (39 frasi) | Citazioni e frasi celebri

In the late s the communist world collapsed, and the Cold War international system became history. In the post-Cold War world, the most important distinctions among peoples are not ideological, political, or economic. Peoples and nations are attempting to answer the most basic question humans can face: And they are answering that question in the traditional way human beings have csontro it, by reference to the things that mean most to them.

People define themselves in terms of ancestry, religion, language, history, values, customs, and institutions. They identify with cultural groups: People use politics not just to advance their interests but also scongro define their identity.

Lo scontro delle civiltà e il nuovo ordine mondiale (Book, ) []

We know who we are only when we know who we are not and often only when we know whom we are against. Nation states remain the principal actors in world affairs. Their behavior is shaped as in the past by the pursuit of power and wealth, cvilt it is also shaped by cultural preferences, commonalities, and differences.

Non-Western societies, particularly in East Asia, are developing their economic wealth and creating the basis for enhanced military power and political influence. A Multipolar, Multicivilizational World. It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic.

The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation-states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations.

The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future. In the clash of civilizations, Europe and America will hang together or hang separately. In the emerging era, clashes of civilizations are the greatest threat to world peace, and an international order based on civilizations is the surest safeguard against world war.

The Commonalities Of Civilization, p. Although Europeans universally acknowledge the fundamental significance of the dividing line between Western Christendom, on the one hand, and Orthodoxy and Islam, on the other, the United States, its secretary of state said, would “not civolt any fundamental divide among the Catholic, Orthodox, and Islamic parts of Europe.

The West In The World, p. If humans are ever to develop a universal civilization, it will emerge gradually through the exploration and expansion of these commonalities.

Thus, in addition to the abstention rule and the joint mediation rule, the third rule for peace in a multicivilizational world is the commonalities rule: This effort would contribute not only to limiting the clash of civilizations but also to strengthening Civilization in the singular hereafter capitalized for clarity.


The singular Civilization presumably refers to a complex mix of higher levels of morality, religion, learning, art, philosophy, technology, material well-being, and sckntro other things. These obviously do not necessarily vary together. Yet scholars easily identify highpoints hujtington lowpoints in the level of Civilization in the histories of civilizations. They are relatively uncivilized. As the civilization evolves it becomes more settled and develops the techniques and skills that make it more Civilized.

As it goes into decay as a civilization, its level of Civilization also declines until it disappears under the onslaught of a different scontrk civilization with a lower level of Civilization.

Some Americans have promoted multiculturalism at home; some have promoted universalism abroad; and some have done both. Multiculturalism at home threatens the United States and the West; universalism abroad threatens the West and the world.

Both deny the uniqueness of Western culture. The global monoculturalists want to make the world like America. The domestic mulitculturalists want to make America like the world. A multicultural America is impossible because a non-Western America is not American. A multicultural world is unavoidable because global empire is impossible. The preservation of the United States and the West requires the renewal of Western identity.

Frasi di Samuel P. Huntington

The security of the world requires acceptance of global multiculturality. Does the vacuousness of Western universalism and the reality of global cultural diversity lead inevitably and irrevocably to moral wcontro cultural relativism? If universalism legitimates imperialism, does relativism legitimate repression?

Once again, the answer to these questions is yes and no. Cultures are relative; morality is absolute.

Clash of Civilizations

Instead of promoting scobtro supposedly universal features of one civilization, the requisites for cultural coexistence demand huntingyon search for what is common to most civilizations. In a multicivilizational world, the constructive course is to renounce universalism, accept diversity, and seek commonalities.

In Eurasia the great historic fault lines between civilizations are once more aflame. This is particularly true along the boundaries of the crescent-shaped Islamic bloc of nations, from the bulge of Africa to central Asia.

Islam has bloody borders.
