Resumo: In order to analyze the numerous perplexities of modern public sphere(s), one needs to understand not only the profound transformations symptomatic of the new global paradigm, but also the increasing proliferation of cultural imaginaries (C. Castoriadis) in the public arena. The polyphony of voices and claims of recognition, the absence of a common project and the disintegration of a universal, enlightened and emancipated thought (J-F. Lyotard) seems to illustrate the sterility and fragmentation of modern public sphere(s). This paper tries, therefore, to scrutinize how the emergence of cultural relativism and particularization not only nourished local identity myopias but also affected the social political legitimacy of the “lifeworld” as a whole vis-à-vis the economic imperatives and the instrumental rationality of the political system (J. Habermas). To overcome such social fissures, to revitalize and redesign our public (global) sphere, it will be brought to discussion S. Benhabib's emphasis on the negotiation of complex cultural dialogues and J. Habermas conception of a deliberative and cosmopolitan democratic model – inhabited by critical, rational and reflexive citizens – that stimulate a certain consensus out of all socio-cultural divergences.
Descrição: This paper was presented in the ESA Research Network Sociology of Culture Conference (Milan, Italy 7-9 October, 2010.) This chapter is part of a research project entitled "Visions and Possibilities of a Global Citizenship in the 21st Century‟.
