Abstract

The attempt to reduce all persons to the unity of a common measure constructs as deviant those whose attributes differ from the group specific attributes implicitly resumed in the norm. The drive to unify the particularly and multiplicity of practices, cultural symbols and ways of relating in clear and distinct categories turns difference into exclusion.
