The Notion of Political Solidarity Within Contemporary Polish Social and Political Theories Dedicated to the Post-“Solidarnosc” History
The heritage of „Solidarno??” and the results of the political transformation after 1989 have mainly been analyzed from the perspective of the remaining elements of the past system. Analysis of “post-communism” or “disillusionment” is currently slowly replaced by the search of a new vision of political community. Using the critical methodologies of Gayatri Spivak and Jacques Ranciere, I would like to examine what concept of solidarity can still be built.
