The absence of a community of values  Ancient Greece  Hierarchy, some gods are above us, some are unreliable, some are vulnerable  Weber believes in certain ways that society is turning into  More small parts  Historical context  Creating a opening for people that are not so accessible to them  Reading: in Tocqueville, discussion is explicit, he mentions the idea of atomization George Simmel (1858-1918) 1. Modernity  Sense consciousness of modernity  Transitions  Attempt to come to industrial revolution (Marx), democratization  Gesellchaft, gemenschaft  Durkheim: organic and mechanic solidarity, how do we understand suicide under these categories  Spread of communications  Faith in progress  Greater choice (dressing, food, manners etc)  Modernity to modernization 2. Identity  Identity is defined is who we’re connected to, which groups we belong to  Finding our sense of social belonging and social connections  To reconnect with the right type of people that you want yourself to be 3. Simmel on modernity and identity in “the web of group affiliations”  Traditional society = dense networks and relationship  Modern society = loose social networks  Simmel: mapping out structural changes  Social networks and the structure of it changes from dense to loose  Implications for identity? o Who you are, are conditioned by your interactions with other people in your social network o You might not be the same person in one context to the next o A part of ourselves changes according to context o Integrity: social networks in a sense fall apart, less integrated in modernity than traditional societies
