This work objective is to develop a simple media to visualize the world system evolution based in the knowledge advance. To achieve this, we pose that knowledge has been precursor of technology and therefore of the social evolution and the conformation of the world system during the major part of history. The employed methodology was the revision of the great global representative phenomena of the international politics through the use of the Kondratieff theory of long cycles and following the Modelski & Thompson (1996) proposal of the existence of at least twentyKondratieff waves (K-1 to K20) traceable. Using these theoretical elements in the global context, in conjunction with a model proposed for the causal relationships of the most representative variables of the phenomena, we obtained condensed graphics that allow the easy visualization of the evolution of the world system.
