Example text

I am thinking of two sets of problems related to this undecidability. One refers to the consequences of disorientation on identity. For Vattimo, as we have seen, individuals are characterized by a continual oscillation between belonging and estrangement, and his idea of emancipation is linked to what he calls ‘the relative chaos’ of the multiple world where oscillation occurs. I take oscillation to be an accurate description of the general conditions in which many contemporary identities are constructed, but it is not clear why one should expect emancipation to follow from it.

Maffesoli put it nicely: ‘Modernity’, he says, ‘used to assign individuals a stable dwelling in an ideology, a class, or a profession, whereas in contemporary society one belongs to a specific place, but not forever. 3 These nomads also differ from the type of individual produced by modernity in another sense: they seem to be less concerned with guilt. Lipovetsky claims that moral views have undergone rapid change since the 1950s, when society entered the era of mass consumption and communications (1992).

Indeed, citizenship transformed the modern history of subjection by conceiving the subject as a site of resistance to subjection. As Balibar notes, citizenship is the paradigmatic form of modern subjectivity in that the citizen ceases to designate simply the one who is called before the law; the citizen also becomes, at least virtually, the one who makes the law or declares it to be valid (Balibar 1994: 11). Seen in this light, citizenship contemplates the differentiation and nomadism of contemporary identities and, at the same time, provides us with a format to think about resistance to subjection.
