Subjectivation, Democracy and Cosmopolitics

Rosa Nidia Buenfil Burgos

Abstract


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 andcosmopolitical discussion. The position of this paper is postfoundational; it revisits the critique of the subject as thesource and origin of meaning; it adheres to the Wittgensteinian notion of meaning as the use of an expression withinthe play of language; it subscribes to the paradoxical interpretation of democracy (Mouffe) and a pluralisticcosmopolitical point of view in the face of a conciliatory cosmopolitanism.
