2001 | The identities

Amid the world and national debate about identities, the author takes positions and supports them from an indispensable point of view, for the understanding of the meaning and sense of identity's phenomena: that of human subjectivity, historically and culturally built . It is not a report or a summary of investigations; it is supported by fifteen years of study about the collective and individual identities and, very especially, about Cuban people's national identity in these days.

A characteristic concept of identities is built from personal and creative positions. The reader will be able to understand the processes that participate in its construction, the applications of concepts, the research and the most burning problems that this polemic has.

Far from restrictions, fashions and disciplinary and conceptual retrenchments, this book overcomes the partiality of some contemporary focuses and it offers a wide panoramic, nourished from the most important sources, and from its experience on this topic.
