    His most recent book is The United States and the End of the Cold War: Implications, Reconsiderations, Provocations (Oxford University Press, ). I would like to acknowledge support, in the preparation of this essay, from the National Research Council's Committee on Contributions of Behavioral and Social Science to the Prevention of Nuclear War. The phrase "new world order" was explicitly used in connection with Woodrow Wilson's global zeitgeist during the period just after World War I during the formation of the League of Nations."The war to end all wars" had been a powerful catalyst in international politics, and many felt the world could simply no longer operate as it once War I had been justified not .

    the dualistic world of the Cold War, U.S. and, by implication, Western hegemony in international politics and economics would come under increasing pressure. Various events taking place during the decade after the end of the Cold War are suggestive of widespread skepticism, even hostili-ty, toward the only superpower in the world. The Subject and Other Subjects will broaden our ideas about the strange interplay between subjects and objects (and other subjects!) that characterizes modern identity, and so provoke lively debate among anthropologists, art historians, literary theorists, philosophers, and others concerned with how the question of the subject becomes entangled.

    Books shelved as skepticism: The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan, Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Supe.   8) Hope is better than skepticism. 9) Faith is better than skepticism. 10) Love is better than skepticism. 11) Skepticism kills innovation and creativity. It creates static beings. We are made to grow and learn and seek truth. Not to just tear it down. 12) Skepticism destroys goals, life, and values.
