GLOBALIZATION AND UNIVERSALISM AS EXEMPLIFIED BY PROPER NAMES IN THE SLAVIC LANGUAGES
Languages of publication
In this article the authoress cites contemporary contexts in which globalization does not apply to economic phenomena, but primarily to culture and a new comprehension altered in relationship to the world's past. The concept of universality and generality of phenomena combines universalism and globalization. An altered exterior divides; anthropocentrism also unites. We can compare universalism to certain phenomena in the past, and globalization to the present day. She shows the similarities and differences arising from the meanings applied to universalism and globalization, so-called universality and generality, with examples relating to the past (dithematic given names in Slavic lands, then Christian names, systems for naming areas (geographic names), the migrations of proper names), but also to the present: contemporary given names, the naming of areas, the change in several functions of proper names, the migrations of names, codification, and standardization. She emphasizes the difference in the concepts of generality and universality in relation to autonomy as a component of national identity arising from history and tradition.
