Subjectivity in the Twenty-First Century : Psychological, Sociological, and Political Perspectives, Hardback Book

Subjectivity in the Twenty-First Century : Psychological, Sociological, and Political Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Romin W. (University of Toronto) Tafarodi

Part of the Culture and Psychology series

Description

What is it like to be a person today? To think, feel, and act as an individual in a time of accelerated social, cultural, technological, and political change?

This question is inspired by the double meaning of subjectivity as both the 'first-personness' of consciousness (being a subject of experience) and the conditioning of that consciousness within society (being subject to power, authority, or influence).

The contributors to this volume explore the perils and promise of the self in today's world.

Their shared aim is to describe where we stand and what is at stake as we move ahead in the twenty-first century.

They do so by interrogating the historical moment as a predicament of the subject.

Their shared focus is on subjectivity as a dialectic of self and other, or individual and society, and how the defining tensions of subjectivity are reflected in contemporary forms of individualism, identity, autonomy, social connection, and political consciousness.
