CARLOS BOARETTO, Antonio. Globalization and the paradoxal intersection between reflective modernization and peripheral modernization in brazilian society: immunization and refusal of modernity in the case of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God. Semin., Ciênc. Soc. Hum. [online]. 2018, vol.39, n.2, pp. 229-244. ISSN 1679-0383.

Guided by the analytical and interpretive method of Karl Mannheim’s German Sociology of Knowledge, as well as by theoretical references, especially by Ulrich Beck, this article seeks to deal with the complex ambivalent process present at the intersection between the cultural values of the second modernity; imposed by the globalization of capitalism in Brazilian society, with our peculiar processes of late and peripheral modernization pointed out by Jesse de Souza. Demonstrating that by pointing to the presence of evil; through the personification of the figure of the devil, in the very social relations that have been degenerated by excessive individualism, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God realizes the denial of modernity itself, by not recognizing new rights of emerging sociocultural identities in our country. Performing a process of segregation and exclusion of society through the immune paradigm of law and, translating, the legacy of our peculiar process of delayed, peripheral and conservative modernization.

Palavras-chave : Globalization; Second modernity; Peripheral modernization; Immunization; Conservatism.
