Subjectivity and the traumatic other

Philosophical and cultural studies

This article discusses the problem of alienation in contemporary and subjectivity beyond existential interaction. The purposes of the research consist in analytics of traumatic human experience in inter-personal relations and identification of reasons for the subject’s suspicion by public. Due to representation of subjectivity beyond inter personal relations the author uses the concept of social exclusion, which is wider than that in the M. Foucault’s conception. In this article this concept has event-based interpretation. The methods of human alienation analytics are psychoanalytic, hermeneutical, structural approaches and the method of event reflection. In social exclusion human restriction of inter-personal relations is the response against the traumatic Other. The article concludes that social exclusion takes place in the spheres of individual existence and the transformation of socio-cultural reality.
