Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

The present volume probes the decline or twilight of subjectivity, which has served as cornerstone of modern philosophy since the Renaissance, together with the repercussions of this decline on social and political thought. In the latter domain, modern subjectivity has tended to foster a distinctive type of individualism: one which treats the ego as the center not only of theoretical cognition but of social-political action and interaction. In trying to pave the way toward a “post-individualist theory of politics”, the volume does not simply reject individualism, but seek to divest it of its anthropocentric, “egological”, and “possessive” connotations. The motivation animating the study, in any case, is not an anti-individualist, and even less an “anti-modernist”, sentiment. The rise of modern subjectivity and man-centered individualism is seen here not merely as an avoidable mistake, but as a phase in the course of human emancipation and maturation – though a phase whose intrinsic shortcomings have now become obvious.
