A discusion about humanity, about what we have in common, seem relevant for historians and philosophers, really everybody. There seems to be a lot of "sub-discussions" in the larger society about what is seen as human rights, dignity, the future of mankind, and even what we have in common as biological creatures and the history of man.  comments?

Well, we are the same species. If you study multiregional history will easily find how similar is people all over the world. Societies, languages, custums, beliefs and cultures may be different, but human behavoir is usually the same.

I am not sure how many will agree that the question of what is common for humans grow in importance. I think, before poeple from the different parts of the planet knew abnout each other, and even before there was significant contact, the idea of humanity may havge seemed less relevant, even less real("are there any human beings in other parts of the world, and if we find some, are they humans at all". If we take a "view from above" of human history, from one point it is the history of humans getting more relationships, being more and more parts of a greater "community" (I did not say wether it was any friendly community). I could have simply discussed "globalisation", but that word makes me think about primarily economic relationships and that is not enough. Especially relative to other types of belonging or identity I think it is gaining importance. This may be regardless of what other kind of belonging to particular community of all levels, be it family, clan, tribe, nation, religious community. I admit that many people tend to be more concious or even "proud" or assertive (such attitude may even sometimes be reasonable), of such "lesser identities" but perhaps that is a defensive attitude, because it is challenged?
