Postmodernism is not identity politics

如果你想从Youtube评论中了解后现代主义哲学 你大概会认为自己涉及 新马克思主义 蒙昧主义 以及我想在这个视频中谈的 左翼身份政治 讨论身份政治会很困难 因为人们常常不下定义就直接用它 但我发现有些人将后现代主义哲学形容成身份政治的巅峰 认为后现代主义相信"世上没有个人 只有人们所属的身份类别 无论是种族、性别还是阶级" 举个例子 Jordan Peterson在谈学校教育时谈到德里达和福柯 我会把链接贴在视频介绍中 Peterson这样描述德里达和福柯的世界观 后现代新马克思主义者的世界观认为 每个人都不是"个人" 因为“个人”是个虚假概念,欧洲中心主义父权创造的虚假概念 人们只是他们身份群体中的一员 而不同的身份群体之间没有真正交流的可能性 所以会有“文化挪用”等现象 这段话根本没有任何正确之处 顺便一提 文化挪用的概念不是来自后现代理论 而是来自后殖民研究 但这不是重点 以下是福柯本人对身份政治的论述 “如果身份成为了性存在带来的问题 如果人们认为他们需要去发现自己的身份 而他们的身份必须成为他们存在的法则 必须成为他们存在的原则和准则 如果他们不断地自问:‘这样做是否符合我的身份?’ 那么我想,人们将会回到一种 非常类似于‘男子气概’的道德规范” 如果我们要讨论身份这一问题 它所指的一定是属于我们独特的自己的身份 这和Peterson的描述基本上完全相反 不过这个视频不是想要作为对Peterson的回应
