Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment
Recognition. I am somebody. In his book titled, Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment, Francis Fukuyama makes a compelling case that there is a strong human need for recognition, and a demand to be respected and valued for who we are. To overcome our current state of resentment and polarization, Fukuyama proposes an acceptance of thinking in terms of identity, but to use identity to integrate not divide us. Deploy an overarching identity larger than our smaller ones to integrate our society. Sounds good to me.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
