This article is based on the metaphor of “a world without surroundings “which, on one hand, can help us to understand the nature of the world that is currently being configured with the processes of globalisation, and on the other, to assess the most intelligent strategies for shaping it, in accord with the criteria of balance and justice. Our task should be, therefore, to cosmopolitise globalisation; that is, to politicise the processes with new political concepts that no longer allow the use of the old strategies of delimitation or differentiation between “Us” and “Them”, and which are demanding integrative actions.
