Subjectivation, Democracy and Cosmopolitics
Burgos, Rosa Nidia Buenfil
World Journal of Education, v3 n1 p52-60 2013
The topic of subjectivity has been the object of permanent, intense and diverse inquiries from various areas of study. In this presentation I will question the crux of subjectivation within the framework of a democratic horizon and cosmopolitical discussion. The position of this paper is postfoundational; it revisits the critique of the subject as the source and origin of meaning; it adheres to the Wittgensteinian notion of meaning as the use of an expression within the play of language; it subscribes to the paradoxical interpretation of democracy (Mouffe) and a pluralistic cosmopolitical point of view in the face of a conciliatory cosmopolitanism.
