Globalization and Mathematical Modeling of Global Evolution
It is demonstrated that the variation in demographic, economic and cultural macrodynamics of the world over the last ten millennia can be accounted for in a very accurate way by very simple
Systemic Boundaries Issue in the Light of Mathematical Modeling of the World-System Evolution
In this article we demonstrate why mathematical models of the World System evolution are so important for the world-systems research, in general, and for the issue of systemic boundaries in
THE RECENT GLOBAL CRISIS UNDER THE LIGHT OF THE LONG WAVE THEORY
In this paper it is presented the secular unfolding of four economics-related agents, which when considered as a whole allow comprehending what happened in the past in the global economy and shed
Waves of socio-economic development – an evolutionary perspective
The main aim of that paper is to outline an alternative view on a wavelike development of human systems. The hypothesis is based on evolutionary interpretation of human knowledge development. There

Accelerating Socio-Technological Evolution: from ephemeralization and stigmergy to the global brain
TLDR
The future, super-intelligent web is envisioned as a "global brain" for humanity, where the feedback between social and technological advances leads to an extreme acceleration of innovation.

Kondratieff Waves in the World System Perspective
The analysis of long economic cycles allows us to understand long-term world-system dynamics, to develop forecasts, to explain crises of the past, as well as the current global economic crisis. The

Evolutionary Paradigm for Global Politics
The evolutionary paradigm for global politics here presented consists of four key propositions: (1) The global political system is a population of policies or strategies; (2) global politics
Societies; evolutionary and comparative perspectives
TLDR
The focus in this volume is on the most comprehensive unit ordinarily studied by sociologists, i.e., the total society, and a broad and tentative schema that divides the evolution of societies into 3 stages--primitive, intermediate, and modern--is presented.

TLDR
A series of exper iments in which the most minimal notion of culture has been ad ded to the Hinton and Nowlan mod el, and this experience is used to comment on the functional value of cult ure, and similarities between an d interac tions among these three classes of adaptive systems.

Is world politics evolutionary learning
The claim is advanced for recognizing evolutionary learning as the generative principle of world politics. Immanuel Kant was the first to specify a “natural” process leading toward “perpetual peace.”
