Crisis of a Hierarchical, Individualistic Cultural Model 1.
From that implicit perspective on life, the media created stories that highlighted the crisis, adding information and showing its effects. They offered the life stories of young men and women who were affected by the crisis.
Undoubtedly there were also many other voices that are more difficult to recover now: They tried to understand the technical language of economics by referring—often with total incredulity or suspicion—to that new reality of information still in formation: Little by little, they stopped believing that reality was an invisible nucleus surrounded by deceptive appearances.
In its place, they began to accept the opposite perspective that reality was visible, but needed to be studied empirically to discredit unfounded beliefs. A big gap was also opened through which a large part of that reality was illuminated by what would be the great legitimized method of observation: Oddly, says de Certeau, this does not necessarily mean we believe that these fictions are reality.
We know they are constructions, representations, and simulations.
This perpetual self-citation—the multiplicity of surveys—is the fiction through which the country is led to believe what the country itself is. This organization thus reinforces another central custom of our contemporary Western societies: Thus, while one young woman left to live in the country, one of the men emigrated, a second woman protested at the university, another man spent his days at home on the sofa, and yet another man exerted himself to become a successful entrepreneur, and so on.
The story centered much more on all those apparently individual responses to the crisis than on what the crisis itself might have meant for the family, social, local, or institutional environments in which these young people lived—never mind the possible collective responses generated from within those environments, the existence of which was obscure at best.
In fact, in the seven years between andit became a coveted and unreachable goal for many. In both cases, the individual point of view was always given narrative pre-eminence. Furthermore, it was supported by basic assumptions, such as that society consists of a set of autonomous in principal individuals who form instrumental relationships among themselves, basically looking for work to gain access to the money that will allow them to fulfill their desires.
The individualist fallacy But as the geographer David Harvey explained in The Urban Experienceunderstanding social reality as though it were essentially a supermarket of goods that individuals can acquire tends to disguise the material constitutive interdependence of human beings, and to exacerbate the competition between them.
This becomes increasingly obvious, in other respects, in our present globalized world: This heritage, however, becomes hidden behind a veil of commercial transactions between individuals when social life is represented in the form of a market. Precapitalist societies thought it was crazy to base their material survival on the uncertainty of competition.
For the same reason, we think a person who bets his or her only house at poker or plays Russian roulette is doing something not only risky but wrong: People always need food, clothing, care, and a place to lay their heads.Clive Griffin Journeymen-Printers, Heresy, And the Inquisition in Sixteenth-Century Spain Barbara Allende aka Ouka Leele is a superb talented Spanish photographer and artist, who was born in Madrid in Ouka Leele, Sagrario de su corazón, Digital photography printed on .
