The more particular a group is, the less it will be able to control the global communitarian terrain within which it operates, and the more universally grounded will have to be the justification of its claims. But there is another reason why a politics of pure difference would be self-defeating. To assert one's own differential identity involves, as we have just argued, the inclusion in that identity of the other, as that from whom one delimits oneself. But it is easy to see that a fully achieved differential identity would involve the 48 SUBJECT OF POLITICS, POLITICS OF THE SUBJECT ••IIKtioning of the existing status quo in the relation between groups.
Here, we have to move to the main theme of this essay: the relation between empty signifiers and politics. Hegemony let me go back to an example that we discussed in detail in Hegemony and Socialist Strategy: I the constitution, according to Rosa Luxemburg, of the unity of the working class through an overdetermination of partial struggles over a long period of time. Her basic argument is that the unity of the class is not determined by an a priori consideration about the priority of either the political struggle or the economic struggle, but by tbe accumulated effects of the internal split of all partial mobilizations.
The universal emerges out of the particular not as some principle underlying and explaining the particular, but as an incomplete horizon suturing a dislocated particular identity. This points to a way of conceiving the relations between the universal and the particular which is different from those that we have explored earlier. In the case of the logic of incarnation, the universal and the particular were fully constituted but totally separated identities, whose connection was the result of a divine intervention, impenetrable to human reason.
