De-Universalizing Political Subjects: Neo-Tribes and New Forms of Action | SpringerLink
The changes in the ideas and values of a large part of the leftist milieu also had an influence on forms of action. This chapter examines such developments through the prism of Maffesoli’s theory of the ‘neo-tribes’: that is, the need for belonging and the search for new identities as a reaction to the perceived decline of the project of modernity. The focus is on the ‘protest camps’, where activism is fused with the construction of alternative communities and identities, and where the vision of the participants for a new society is ‘prefigured’.
