The Influence of the Process of Globalization on the Mentality of the Traditional Society
Urunova Hamida Umarboevna
The article considers the issue about the essence of the worldwide process of globalization and its influence on changing the mentality of the people in traditional societies. The author notes that this influence has several kinds beginning from clash of cultures, fighting to modernization and development of cultures, but as she emphasizes, generally there is a tendency to an unknown concept according to which common values should rule and dominate all over the world. It means that national states have to realize these values in their interior and inferior policy. In her opinion the process of globalization is equivalent to the process of westernization as today globalization is being realized around western values, which can destruct traditions, and spiritual values of eastern countries, including Tajikistan. That is why on this basis the problem of protecting national identity, which is closely connected with the national mentality, is being activated in many societies.
