      Abstract

      Lo social, como territorio de pensamiento y acción, ha sido central tanto para el pensamiento como para la programación política, desde mediados del siglo XIX. El presente trabajo sostiene que, incluso cuando los temas de la sociedad y las preocupaciones por la cohesión y la justicia social sean aún significativos en la discusión política, lo social no es ya una zona clave, blanco y objetivo de estrategias de gobierno. El lenguaje de globalización señala que las relaciones económicas no son ya tan fácilmente inteligibles, ni organizadas mediante una economía nacional definida. La comunidad ha devenido una nueva espacialización del gobierno; heterogénea, plural, que interconecta individuos, familias y otros dentro de ensamblajes culturales, de identidades y lealtades que compiten entre sí. Las divisiones entre los sujetos de gobierno son codificadas de maneras novedosas; ni los excluidos ni los incluidos son gobernados como ciudadanos sociales. Estrategias no-sociales son desarrolladas para el gerenciamiento de la autoridad experta. Consignas antipolíticas como el asociativismo y el comunitarismo, que no tratan de gobernar a través de la sociedad, están en ascenso en el pensamiento político. El presente artículo sugiere algunas formas de diagnosticar y analizar estas nuevas territorializaciones del pensamiento y de la acción política.

      Translated abstract

      The social, as a plane of thought and action, has been central to political thought and political programs since the mid-nineteenth century. This paper argues that, while themes of society and concerns with social cohesion and social justice are still significant in political argument, the social is no longer a key zone, target and objective of strategies of government. The rise of the language of globalization indicates that economic relations are no longer easily understo- od as organized across a single bounded national economy. Community has become a new spatialization of government: heterogeneous, plural, linking individuals, families and others into contesting cultural assemblies of identities and allegiances. Divisions among the subjects of government are coded in new ways; neither the included nor the excluded are governed as social citizens. Non-social strategies are deployed for the management of expert authority. Antipolitical motifs such as associationism and communitarianism which do not seek to govern through society are on the rise in political thought. The paper suggests some ways of diagnosing and analyzing these novel territorializations of political thought and action.
