In this edition, we include three pieces.
First, we republish, with permission, Ivan Timofeev’s article “A State as Civilization and Political Theory.”
Next, we include a piece by Michael Hartoonian on the tensions between culture and civilization.
Lastly, we include excerpts from the September 13 statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China proposing a new regime for global governance.
I would be most interested in your thoughts and feedback.
