6th CGS Interdisciplinary Conference
“Transitive Justice. Creating Norms and System Change”
7-8 July 2017, Toruń (Poland)
Changes develop equally innovative and destructive potential. Transformation processes can be interpreted as progress, modernization and advancement, but as well as decline, degeneration and disaster. The deconstruction of acknowledged normality are always moments of great social intensity, which need collective commentary and classification in terms of remembrance culture. The elites perceive the function of mediator between social event and its interpretation in the sense of “positivity of discourse” (Foucalt).
