This work examines community as an idea that has dominated modern thought and traces its relation to concepts of experience, discourse and the individual. Contrary to popular Western notions of community, the author shows that it is neither a project of fusion nor production. Rather, he argues, community can be defined through the political nature of its resistance against immanent power.
