In The globalization in Ernst Jünger. From World War to World State, Jan Schlosser follows the German writer's understanding of global phenomena and the development of global narratives in his writings. In the early works of Jünger he reflected on the modern technology that was developed in connection with World War I. In this period he had the controversial view that there are people who master these technologies. After Germany's defeat Jünger was a spokesman for a world state and already questioned the national state, which he considered the source of mass extinction. Schlosser shows that Jünger continued to be a supporter of the vision of a world state, but that in his later days he developed a critical narrative of globalization for different reasons. One reason was the ecological imbalance created by human greed for energy. Another reason was globalization's cultural homogenization with the following loss of cultural diversity.
