Abstract

Poststructuralist theory focuses largely on describing
how and why subjects reproduce the social conditions they have internalised.
This is a deconstruction of the central idea of the Enlightenment, the human
capacity for autonomous action. At the same time, however, it also denies all
individuals any responsibility and ultimately leads criticism into a crisis.
Pragmatist philosophy offers the possibility of determining the role of the
mind in processes of becoming a subject without abandoning the achievements of
the poststructuralist concept of subjectification. The concept of transaction
describes how actors constitute each other as subjects within social
situations. The relationships that arise through such processes depend, among
other things, on the personalities of those people involved. Accordingly, it is
possible to identify the responsibility of individuals to govern their social
relations and personality development. Since these aspects can only be
determined in localised individual cases, this offers a particularly suitable
starting point for geographical critic.
