To explore this better affirmation, Hall defines the identities and the character of the change in delayed modernity. Three conceptions of identity: 1) Citizen of the Iluminismo the citizen of the iluminismo was based on a conception of unified individual, total centered, endowed with reason capacities, of conscience and of action and its center consisted of the interior nucleus, that is, the essential center of I age the identity of the person. Conception this that the author defines as individualistic, of our point of view, perhaps reducionista. 2) Sociological citizen This notion reflected the complexity of the modern world and the conscience of that an interior nucleus exists, but this was not independent nor self-sufficient, but he was formed of the relation with the other people, that is, mediated for the social relations. A interacionista conception of citizen (G.H. Mead, C.H. Cooley). It attempts against for the fact that the citizen still has a nucleus and/or essence, however, this is formed and modified in a continuous dialogue with the culture relations that this provides.
This vision fills the space between the world ' ' interior' ' the exterior, and as if the identity sewed subject to the structure. ' ' … the identities that composed the social landscapes ' there fora' that assured our subjective conformity with ' necessidades' objective of the culture, are entering in collapse, as resulted of structural changes and institucionais' '. 3) Citizen after-modern the citizen after-modern drift of this process of change in the conception, and this does not have a fixed identity, essential and permanent. The identity that before was thus, now is mobile. It also, from this conception, can assume different identities at different moments, and still, identities that are not unified inside of one ' ' eu' ' coherent, therefore I teethe of us has contradictory identities. The character of the change in delayed modernity Is necessary to have in mind the context of the process known as globalization and its impact on the cultural identity. The societies modern are, therefore, for definition, society of constant, fast and permanent change.
This is the main distinction between traditional and modern societies. In contrast, modernity, is not defined only by the fast, ample and continuous change, but it is to a highly reflexiva form of life: ' ' practical the social ones constantly are examined and remodelled to the light of the proper information received on those practical ones, modifying, thus, constituently its carter' ' Discontinuities When a structure is dislocated, that is, are that one whose its center is dislocated, this ' ' vazio' ' it is not filled by another center, but yes for a plurality of centers, centers of being able. This, in turn, does not have no articulador principle or organizador only in accordance with does not develop the unfolding of an only cause. is constantly being descentrada or better dislocated for forces it are of same itself. From this concept, Hall, explains that societies in delayed modernity are characterized by the difference, them different divisions and social antagonisms are crossed by that produce a variability of position of the citizen, that is, identities for the individuals. However this would take in them to ask: The possibility of displacement of the positions of the citizens at different moments places the citizen in a privileged position? Apud affirms Laclau Hall, that this would not have discouraging in them, therefore the displacement has positive characteristics, it disarticulates the steady identities of the past, and also it opens new joints.
