As already clarified Morin and Anne Brigitte Kern callPatria Mundo Fatherland-Earth (or homeland), and although they see the ontological importance of the concep , understand that see the world as homeland is more comprehensive because it incorporates besides the people and the planet itself, the world as a living being and present in the reality of cultures and peoples .

Chapters 2 and 3 of earth and planetary identity agony , even though the topics are relevant essentially think that the crisis involves something beyond the contradictions and cultural and political issues at stake , what is at stake , it agree with the author , that man is now seen as a whole attends his planetary experience and communications play an important role in human vision is clear , but with media aids.
