From the concept of ‘subject’ to the concepts of subjectivization and de-subjectivization
Working paper in french.
Sociology has recently opened up to the concept of ‘subject’ and, even more recently, to the project of envisaging the subject’s dark, destructive and self-destructive aspects. We now have to take a further step and give some consideration to the processes of subjectivization and de-subjectivization by means of which the subject, and its dark counterpart, the anti-subject, are shaped and ceaselessly transformed. Once we have done this, it will be possible to analse the phenomena of the projection of memories into public space from a new angle, namely, precisely, the processes of subjectivization and de-subjectivization in te course of which memories are projected into the public sphere or remain buried in te silence of consciences.
