Sažetak
The paper analyses some basic characteristic of the culture of capitalism, global culture and globalization. The central difficulty is to express the nature of capitalism as an economic and cultural system. In the last forty years, the analysis of capitalist culture has focused on the cultural practices of consumption. Moreover, consumptionhas become the cultural telos of capitalism. The point is on the cultural significance of (practices) of consumption.These practices are not static but change with the passage of time. Thus the contents of "our culture" continually shift with the passage of time. While the idea of imperialism contains the notion of intended spread of a social system from one centre of power across the globe, the idea of globalisation suggests interconnection and interdependency of all global areas which happens in a far less purposeful way. It happens as the result of economic and cultural practices which do not, of themselves, aim at global integration but which nonetheless produce it. The cultural experience of people caught up in these processes is likely to be one of confusion, uncertainty and the perception of powerlessness. The general cultural insecurity of globalisation has been described in some of the more considered accounts of "postmodernity" . The cultural space of the global is one to which we are constantly referred, but also one in which it is very difficult to locate our own personal experience. For today's global culture is tied to no place or period. This sense of timelessness is powerfully underlined by the pre-eminently technical nature of its discourse. Eclectic, universal, timeless and technical, a global culture is seen as a "constructed" culture.
