DUPRET, Marie-Astrid. The Left in the postmodern storm: The pitfalls of thinking about a policy of more social justice in the era of post-factualism. Universitas [online]. 2019, n.31, pp.79-95. ISSN 1390-8634.

There is a strong political malaise in what refers to the Left. This feeling of confusion can be explained by the advent of postmodernity and the numerical disruption that have transformed society and subjectivities. The post-truth politics of the so-called post-tactical shows a loss of ethical values, replaced by discourses based on emotionality and imaginary identifications. The transhumanist vision of the world, supported by cybernetics and above all genetic engineering, promotes the idea of ​​a quantified being, freed from the social bond. It points to a model of atomized and inequitable society, and to the accentuation of the ecological crisis. The Left has not reflected on these transformations and does not offer alternatives to counteract the societal destructuring due to neoliberalism. The struggle towards the collective reappropriation of human life and nature could open the way to a new ideal of the Common Good.

Palabras clave : Common good; inequality; monetization; post-factualism; post-truth politics; transhumanism.
