Summary/Abstract: In this paper the concept of bricolage is applied to the paradoxical contexts of transitory societies using the translation of general theoretical concepts to those politically recognizable. On the one hand, notions of intersubjectivity, improvisation and self-organisation suggest social functioning based on the principles of free market, management and self-government; while on the other, common understanding of transition as the 'application of democracy ' according to a model, introduces radically different background of 'bricolage' as non-inventiveness, imitation, fragmentary connection and 'irrational mentality'.
