RUIZ MARTIN DEL CAMPO, Emma. Postmodern subjects, subjects in extreme defenselessness?: The extermination of the others: mercantilism, wars, genocide. Espiral (Guadalaj.) [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.53, pp.151-182. ISSN 1665-0565.

Mankind at the end of the 20th Century and the beginning of the 21st have been marked by the great technological breakthroughs and an accelerated cultural change. On the other hand, it is being tested by violence and cruelty outbreaks in various corners of our world. The social welfare states have brought about an out-and-out mercantilism that erases the individual's singularity and deprives many of them of a social place, thus putting the civilizing contract at risk. New forms of war and genocide have emerged that make us question our possibilities of coexisting and staying alive as a species. Do we have the resources to counteract the grim panorama around us? The genocide occurred in Srebrenica in 1995 and the testimony given by one of the survivors of the massacre help us to reflect on these issues.

Palabras llave : Violence; mercantilism; subjects; risk; survival.
