    Thanks for the post. I liked the way you approached the subject. But I have some questions, I would like you to elaborate more on some specific topics. You said:

    “One of the arguments goes that the development of modern liberal democracies, industrialisation and the establishment of a bourgeois civil society necessitated the public/private split sense of self – the modern subject”.

    I don’t know much about this subject, so can you give an example of a work/article which explains the necessity of the public/private sense? And why do you think “the time may have finally come to leave the past behind”?

    Thank you.
