(p.253) Solidarity
Thinking with Balibar

Gary Wilder

Fordham University Press

Identifies one thread running through Balibar’s career: the question of how, in the absence of the certainties provided by universal history, mechanical materialism, class essentialism, ethnic unity, natural nations, or territorial fixity, a political subject and social collectivity manages to emerge, hang together, and act in the world, whether during or after struggles for emancipation and collective self-determination. “Citizenship” is one name that Balibar assigns to this political problem and phenomenon. But one might also locate the question of citizenship within the more general problematic of ‘solidarity’ (and vice versa).

Keywords:   association, certainty, citizenship, deconstruction, Du Bois, entanglement, Gramsci, Koselleck, patriarchy, solidarity
