This chapter sums up the key findings of this study about the universal history of civilization. This book has provided a step-by-step account of how the project of creating a universal empire of civilization or a uniform empire of civilization has been pursued through the centuries and continues to be pursued into the twenty-first century. It has been confirmed that the driving forces behind this project are the ideal of civilization and the idea of progress. The chapter also discusses the future of so-called intercivilizational relations.
