Book ✓ Living in a Age of Uncertainty Ë Zygmunt Bauman

كتاب يبحث في خبايا التحولات الراهنة وما يعيشه العالم في ظل التطورات الإقليمية من حولنا، وضعت الشبكة العربية رؤية خاطفة عن الكتاب قالت فيه «الأزمنة السائلة هو نص يملك من القدرة التفسيرية ما يجعله مناسباً لفهم تحولات كثيرة يمر بها عالمنا الراهن الذي لم تعد تقسيماته الجغرافية دالة بمثل ما باتت التقسيمات الثقافية والاقتصادية على محكات الغنى والفقر والاستكبار والاستضعاف هي الأكثر مركزية»، اهتم العالم بومان بالعلاقة الشائكة بين الحداثة والعقلانية والبي Zygmunt Bauman is a Polish born sociologist in the Marxist tradition mostly known for his thoroughgoing critiues of consumerism modernity and cultural memory especially the Holocaust His “liuid” books including “Liuid Modernity” 2000 “Liuid Love On the Frailty of Human Bonds” 2003 “Liuid Life” 2005 “Liuid Fear” 2006 and the book presently considered “Liuid Times Living in an Age of Uncertainty” 2006 for the most part seem to be shorter books whose aim is to adumbrate the arguments Bauman has made over the course of his career The focus of “Liuid Times” is a meta critiue of globalization and all of the problems it presents from rootlessness to the ubiuity of the security sate with Bauman’s central thesis being that the conseuences of globalization have seriously hindered attempts at international justice The goal of globalization to eradicate any trade barriers and therefore create “markets without frontiers” results in the transition from a world where people are subject to the laws and protections of their home countries to one in which radical fear and lack of security are reified and the “fading of human bonds and the wilting of solidarity” reigns This lack of security results in fear and a perceived lack of control which in turn perpetuates and shores up the conspicuous shift toward national security that we have experienced in advanced liberal democracies And so the pernicious cycle goes In his comparison of cities the globally located ones that are able to participate in the fully integrated sphere of globalization and locally located cities ones those that aren’t Bauman says that the job of the city has changed from protecting its inhabitants from outsiders to housing ghettoized populations of peripatetic transnationals and strangers the “dumping ground for globally conceived and gestated problems” Our new liuid times have also brought about an unprecedented number of refugees both political and economic Wars which Bauman thinks are essentially local attempts to solve global problems become intractable The result is an “excess of humanity” – humanity as waste product – completely and utterly divested of property personal identity or even a state that will recognize their existenceBauman suggests that democracy has ironically become an elitist affair where the rich protect their interests and the poor continue to suffer from a lack of social safety nets and supportive governmental networks He is also not terribly optimistic about the chances of gaining a pre globalized utopia a word which Thomas More first darkly noted could mean homophonically either “paradise” or “nowhere” While it is still a paradise for some our world has become too liuid to be anything but the latter for most of us In the end Bauman offers in every analysis of globalization the ultimate paradox of modernity a permanent life shot through with impermanencyAs I pointed out before at least according to the back of the book Bauman has taken the time to further detail his analyses in other books However from what I read here I am not sure how many of his arguments are original Books on globalization with themes of alienation and disenfranchisement are not unpopular in the field of sociology However Bauman’s wry wit definitely has me interested in reading of his work which I plan on reviewing in the future

Zygmunt Bauman Ë Liquid Times. Living in a Age of Uncertainty Epub

Liquid Times Living in a Age of Uncertaintyة الحقيقية التي يؤمن بها، ويتطرق بومان في كتاب «الأزمنة السائلة العيش في زمن اللايقين» إلى فكرة التقسيم بشكلها العام، وإذ إنه لم يعد التقسيم الجغرافي هو التقسيم الأكثر خطورة بل نعيش اليوم ماهو أشد ألماً كالتقسيم الثقافي والاقتصادي وكيف أن التقسيم الثقافي يمكن له أن ينتج سلوكيات غير حداثية وغير صحية، بحكم أنها ستولد لنا مجتمعات منغلقة على نفسها لا تقبل الآخر، وهذا لا يقل خطورة عن التقسيمات الاقتصادية الكبرى والتي تحد بدورها من مفهوم التنمية الاقتصادي Is a powerful commentary on what is happening to us post Age of Reason It is an opinion book; an opinion with which one can agree with or which opens up platforms for discussion To my taste there is too much Marxism; but taking it into consideration I was able to enjoy his way of thinking a lotThe way Bauman builds his thought is extraordinary sentences spread over multiple lines of text and the language is opens up to offer another dimensions of meaning to his thought Four stars are given for I would think of a better structure for the book; as it felt like some chapters were initially a stand alone essays that got bound into the book
