Having understood some of the general criticisms advanced towards Huntington's theory, we have made attempts to circumvent, or otherwise, avoid the flaws presented in Huntington's initial arguments.
This website has no intention of claiming that the civilizational perspective is in any way the most relevant or accurate among all perspectives that have been proposed by scholars or historians.
The civilizational perspective that we are introducing in this website is designed to provide users with the information to integrate civilizational variables into their own view of the equation of world order. We do not intend to prove that it will not work at every instance, or provide an accurate view of every single global event, but we hope to add dynamism to web users' view of the world order. We do not discredit any other perspective, or aim to subscribe web users to the civilizational paradigm, but we just aim to create awareness among web users regarding this perspective of viewing the world; and hence we do not intend to compete with any other scholastic perspective.
The perspective that this website introduces has no expicit link to any time frame.
Professor Huntington based his clash of civilizations on the post Cold War world. This website, however, does not explicitly link this perspective that we are introducing to the post Cold War world, but to the entire history of mankind as a whole, where possible. This perspective that this website introduces is a way of studying global happenings from another dimension of global affairs: The Civilizational Dimension.
The civilizational perspective that this web site introduces is intended to be a guide, not a solution to understanding the world order.
This civilizational perspective is one of many ways of which pople can understand global events. It is not a widely agreed upon perspective nor it is widely tested. Its effectiveness to have been widely debated. Hence, this web site does not intend to propound this theory or lend support to it, but merely intends to introduce the civilizational perspective, which in several fundamental ways, have been modified from Professor Huntington's civilizational paradigm, to a wider Internet-based audience.
