REFLEXIVE MODERNITY AND THE RE-INVENTING OF POLITICS

Summary/Abstract: The paper juxtaposes the attempt to find the new place of the political within the reflexive modernity, with a rather descriptive definition of the political from the perspective of political science containing three aspects: institutional (polity), contents regarding (policy), process-regarding (politics). Based on that juxtaposition a doubt is stated in the thesis about the replacement of the political out of the political system and its being related to the subpolitics, as emphasizing the contents-regarding aspect. The criticised thesis leaves without enough attention the other two aspects, and especially the institutional one. Attention is paid to the key significance of the factor of globalization for the change of the political and for its theoretical grasping.
