The subject of this paper is the space in the context of globalization theories and discussion: Is the globalization a kind of homogenization, i.e. lost of cultural diversity? The theories of modernization, americanization, liberalization and westernalization are the kinds of possitive answers to this question. The text proposes another point of view. Transcultural flows, migrations, cultural diffusions and interactions, all do not decrease cultural differences. On the contrary, they reproduce, transform and create cultural heterogeneity. The most important part of this kind of explanation are history, time and its passage and particularly the inevitable and irreversible character of this flux.
