“WEAK” SUBJECTIVITIES: IDENTITY FORMATION IN THE AGE OF GLOBALIZED COMMUNICATION


Posted On Oct 14 2011 by

This paper presents Gianni Vattimo’s account of globalization as a radicalization of Martin Heidegger’s history of Being – which culminates in Enframing – in light of the question of the possibility of contemporary formations of subjectivity. It will be demonstrated that, according to Vattimo, subjectivity can no longer be simply understood via traditional notions of space and place, but rather has to be exposed as dwelling oscillating between provenance and disorientation.
