Brocker I 841
Civilization/Huntington: Huntington develops a simple structural concept through which civilizations and cultural boundaries can be made tangible theoretically. A "member state" sees itself entirely as the bearer of a single civilization, while the "source" of each civilizational unit can be found in one or more "core states".(1) While the western civilization of our time originates from a North American and a German-French core, Latin American, Islamic and African civilization are without a core state. In addition, "lonely countries" such as Ethiopia, Haiti or Japan lack cultural links to other civilisations. (2)
Examples of "torn states: Sudan, Kemalist Turkey, Tsarist Russia since Peter the Great. Thesis: Never in the history of cultures has it been possible to bring "artificial" references to civilization under the aegis of political leadership. (3)
Brocker I 847
Civilization in the singular: as (...) a principle of commonalities, states should formulate shared values and principles in order to promote "civilization in the singular, i.e. civilized life" (4). See Culture/Huntington.
