Title: Dividuations Theories of Participation
Authors: Ott, Michaela

Keywords: Theories of Participation
Issue Date: 2018
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Description: This philosophical study was primarily written for those who are curious about other forms of self-definition in turbulently changing times. It is for those experiencing a creeping doubt regarding their undividedness— their individuality—because they have discovered that their fortunes in life depend upon a large number of factors, which include other persons both close to home and far away, various milieus, aesthetic/technological circumstances and time-bestowing events. They see themselves less as masters of their fate than as servants of their life constellation. Insights of this kind suggest that we understand ourselves in terms of participation, in many directions and on various levels. The concept of the individual, introduced as a Latin translation of the Greek atomist world view in the first century bce and later made general for political and economic reasons, is increasingly recognised as misleading and ecologically and ethically disastrous.
