Judgment and Disagreement

(p.167) X Judgment and Disagreement
The Tyranny of the Moderns

Nadia Urbinati

, Martin Thom
Yale University Press

This chapter argues that individualism does not disrupt social communication but facilitates it, precisely through its rootedness in equality and in the politics of rights, and that individualism, rather than obliterating politics, introduces a new form of political culture. It addresses the dissent and sovereignty of judgment. It shows that the feeling of disillusionment and dissatisfaction lead to the individual to pay attention to public life and to combine a helpful habit of dissent and judgment.

Keywords:   individualism, social communication, political culture, sovereignty, judgment, disillusionment, dissatisfaction, dissent
