Further Details
Abstract Social fluidity is the case, & we intend to rise it to an ontology level. Some explanations will therefore be needed. On the one hand, historical arguments are helpful to state its actuality: the fact that the contemporary world tends to fluidification. On the other hand, 'ontology' had to be reformulated & reoriented to social theory development itself. In this way, the interest points to the abolition of the traditional dichotomy based on the difference between ontology & ontic knowledge, in order to place world behavior & meaning processes at a same level of reality. The theory of forms will be questioned in its preeminence to undertake an ontology development. The new ontology pretended in this article is triggered by the question of what could be the role of political resistance in such a world, decentered & entering a deforming process? A theory of the social timespace (STS) will be the way to replace resistances to particular contexts where domination spots have emerged. Being moved from the modernity paradox of destroy/ reform (as a historical source of motion) to a scheme of fluids will be our final attempt.
