In the second issue of vol. 2 (2019) we are focussing on the relationship of culture, civilisation and evolution of humanity. After pivotal works of Giambattista Vico, Gabriel Bonnot de Mably, Oswald Spengler, Arnold Toynbee, Wilhelm Windelband, Jose Ortega y Gasset, the humanity ceased to be considered as a homogeneous society whose development is determined by a unified logic. But today we can no longer ignore the fact that we are living in the time of realising the global ideological and political project aimed at the creation of United Humanity devoid of national and cultural salience. The authors of this issue are trying to capture the consequences of such a project.

Key words: United Humanity, culture, civilisation, mentality, national peculiar features, multibillion world, Horror Zivilisationis, homo billionis, human behavioural patterns, monotheism, monohumanism
