, services and entrepreneurship are being drastically reduced and everybody now has to compete with everybody in what has now become a global village and single global market. However, this notion of globalization which appears on the surface to be convincing and attractive does not capture the actual realities of the contempo- rary world economy. There is the illusion of a free global trade and free market. Some examples include: - The overwhelming majority of mankind who lives in Africa, Asia and South and Central America produce and live from commodities

out-of-school children has been cut in half since 2000. For universal en- rolment in primary education the threshold used is 97% and based on this threshold education is almost universal in almost all regions excepting Sub-Saharan Africa. Even if the results are encouraging we notice that there are some disparities between rich and poor households, rural and urban households and children with disabilities. The third goal is to promote gender equality and empower women. Studies showed that there is a positive impact on development of the increased level of

ego. In the case of a number of the lessons that make up this book, especially those on “The Philosophers and the Animals” andThe Poets and the Animals,” though Coetzee speaks the words, he of course does so in a roundabout way: as a famous writer he addresses the audience at an American college not by delivering the expected lecture, but 22 Johan Geertsema instead by narrating a story about a famous writer, Elizabeth Costello, deliver- ing a lecture to an audience at an American college. The consequence is that Coetzee’s words both belong and do not belong

there is an ongoing debate concerning Coetzee’s affiliation to two twentieth-century European avant-garde literary movements – modernism and postmodernism. On the one hand, Coetzee is frequently referred to as a self- conscious postmodernist (Lowry 1999) and the first South African writer who created experimental novels using the achievements of European postmodern- ism (Head 2009: 23–24). On the other hand, the affinity of Coetzee’s work to the writings of Beckett and Kafka has led Derek Attridge to describe his art as “late modernism” or “neomodernism” (2004: 2

The term “property” has its origins in the Latin word “proprius”, meaning “one’s own”.23 So important is the right to property that it is embedded in the constitutions of most civilised nations and key international human rights treaties. These include, among others, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (hereinafter referred to as the UDHR),24 the African,25 American,26 Arab27 and European28 human rights conventions and the European Union (he- reinafter referred to as the EU) Charter.29 These

Kristeva: it is “verse au père – père-version,” the story of the father, the Law, the Symbolic which attempts to encompass the abject (ibid. 149–150). Lawlan’s promising and sensi- tive reading, however, leads somewhat disappointingly only to the conclusion that The Master of Petersburg can be read as Coetzee’s confession, a manifestation of his personal guilt as a white South African writer (ibid. 149). I also find her claim, according to which fictional Dostoevsky “totally lacks the mastery over self-consciousness […] which would allow sufficient confession of

The 6 Antonio Tencat i and Lasz lo Zso lnai Group was composed of nineteen distinguished persons from busi- ness, academies, governments/public institutions and NGOs in Europe, North America and Japan (The Group of Lisbon 1994). The report develops a strong, well-documented and clear criti- cism of the competition ideology dominant in the post-Cold-War world. In the 1990s
