In a world full of socio-political changes, antagonisms and hegemonic relations it's our obligation to analize them. Authors of my concern - Ernesto Laclau i Chantal Mouffe have the same agenda in their analysis of hegemonic relations, questions of identity making, emergence of populism etc. Well known Marxist tradition was not enough anymore to deal with emergence of new Postodern trends. Laclau and Mouffe continue to stay in that line but they extended it with conciliation of Gramsci idea with post-structuralism. Multiplicity of identities and human need to belong to some group of any kind (more or less) are inherent to us and we can clearly see all of that in current socio-political struggles. Nation and national identity was constructed with emergence of modern societies. Through concept of hegemony Laclau tries to define crucial field for construction of political group.
