At a time when everybody conceives of all this cliched postmodern bullshit: how the world is in the process, in the throes of a Balkanization, a culture of fragmentation -- when it is so clearly not that at all. If you like, the whole problem of unity, totality, etc., has been switched. The real important questions have been pushed up to another level and the identification of that level seems to me to be strategically very important right now. Kwinter 1995a, 34
