Making Sense of Collectivity Ethnicity, Nationalism and Globalization by Sinisa Malesevic and Mark Haugaard pdf free download. The concept of collectivity is the basis for the sociological enterprise as defined by both Durkheim and Weber. This insight is premised
upon the idea that society is more than the sum of its parts. Contrary to the assertions of Margaret Thatcher, once individuals are in interaction with one another (as they invariably are) they contribute to the creation of collectivities which both transcend and supersede the interacting agents.

The process of collectivity creation can be either intentional – resulting in the creation of groups and organisations, or unintentional – resulting in social systems where collective membership and ends are more diffuse. In this instance the term social system should
not be interpreted in a structural-functionalist sense but rather as an area of social life characterised by a loosely defined ‘local’ social order. The difference between intentionally and unintentionally created collectivities is essentially one of scale.

At one end of the scale there are specific groups created for the purpose of collective goals, while at the other end of the spectrum there are large complex systems which are almost entirely the consequence of the unintentional effects of intentional action. In the centre of the scale there are collectivities which are a hybrid of intentional and unintentional action, organisation and system. The paradigm instance of such a hybrid is the nation state, which is both an intentional construct (as in nation building) and, simultaneously, a political creation which presupposes foundations in culturally constituted societies that have come into existence through forces which nobody controls or directs.

Indeed, one of the central legitimating claims made by nationalists is that nations just ‘are’, that is, they exist simply as the
unintended consequence of actors reproducing their local collective system of meaning and identification. The actual form which collectivities take can be multiple, including, starting at the intentional end: athletic associations, corporations, nation states, empires, tribes, ethnic communities, civilisations, etc.

Indeed, the contemporary claim that we are entering a global era is a claim to the effect that the globe itself constitutes a collectivity – a collectivity which is superseding the nation state. While the global collectivity is largely at the unintentional-effects end of the spectrum, it is also, like all collectivities, partly a hybrid; there are agents (largely an elite group) who
embrace the global vision of the world and who act upon it.
