Ideal Community by Jean Luc Nancy
Thank you very much for your idea!
On one hand, Heidegger said that in order for us to exist, we must co-exist. As I have understood, the beingness of a being becomes a reality when it is affirmed by another being. Does this mean that our being only becomes a reality when we get identified with another being?
On the other hand, Jean-luc Nancy suggests that in order for us to "be" we must return to the original idea of individuality.
The cause of problems in our society today, Nancy suggests, is that we are vigorously searching for an ideal community, this often results to misuse of power, corruption, and division in the community.
Dont you think humans are capable of forming a community without sacrificing ones identity? or without running the risk of falling into individualism?
