Civilizations tend to fail, or gain antagonistic characteristic, not necessarily as a consequence of their inherent specificities, but also because of their interaction with other civilizations. which have not attained such intellectual evolution, though they may have developed more advanced technology. In addition to military wars, the rise and decline of civilizations are highly linked to their ability to dominate the engine of the market. which nowadays sets supremacy of perceived values both for individual and institutional behaviours by leading to expansion of Western civilization. Certain intact groups and societies, Islamic and Chinese civilizations deviate from this trend by their institutions that hold their idiosyncratic understanding of values. This article indicates the likelihood of an emerging market paradigm based on civilized plurality, which, by being liberated from the hegemony of perceived values, emancipates the co-existence of various civilizations.
