Sujeto e hipermodernidad
The theoretical and sociohistorical bases of the actual transformations of modernity and the corresponding moving social status of the subject are explored. The hypermodern ideology puts a strong focus on the self-governing individual, neglecting social, collective and political issues compared to the dominant forces of the neoliberal economy. A clinical sociology approach, using participative methods in groups, is a strong way to raise critical consciousness and real empowerment. Clinical research experiences rely on the ‘exchange of types of knowledge’, where science, professional expertise and common sense are producing new understanding for action.
