I am careful to say that I am sure that this chapter could only have been written by a man in his sixties, enabled by time and its ravages to be less cautious and correct. And the music is also a bit of self-mockery, ironic and suggestive, I hope. It may seem perverse to call for a return to the notion of the individual in progressive political theorising at a time when so many bemoan the collapse of social and communal ties in Western societies. Families don’t go bowling any more. And you (Andrew) want more individualism when everyone is already looking after Number One, in an ethos of sauve qui peut (‘every man for himself’)?
I think it is important to explore these questions because many of the horrid conformist features of contemporary Western societies rest on the idea that ‘you belong’. This becomes ‘you should belong’ and, then, ‘you belong to us’. Society does its bit to get us all to stay in context – even the bankers! Joining the system is more or less compulsory – in Durkheim’s terms, mechanical solidarity not organic solidarity. The opposites of constructionism and contextualism are essentialism, universality and eternity.
The fundamental premise is that the human individual is of primary importance in the struggle for liberation. Individualism is thus also associated with artistic and bohemian interests and lifestyles – self-creation and experimentation as opposed to tradition or mass opinion. ) I’d like to suggest that we can revise this monolithic and over-solid approach to take in the idea of the individual as fractured. The fact that an individual is fractured is not an obstacle to radical politics, rather it is a source of them.
