Doxa and the Paradox of the Limited Liability Company (Society)

Irena Lagator Pejović


This paper addresses the deconstructive questioning of the international economic expression of the LLC/Limited Liabilty Company and its role in global capitalism. Through an analysis of its constitutive notions in the context of post-Fordist production and the relationship to the issue of creativity, my goal is to demonstrate the opposite of the confirmation that such an expression emphasizes in the language and enables in reality. My thesis is to prove that today the multitude is acting within the limitless potential of human, social and cultural creativity.


My intent in this paper is to prove that the tone of the meaning of the term LLC/Limited Liability Company is imposed by capitalist society and that may be aimed at subversive action on the capacity of the multitude. In this process, Derridan deconstruction serves to analyze the LLC through the concepts of sociability, responsibility, and limitation. Areas of interest are the strategy of Hannah Arendt’s entry into the essence of bios politicos and the way in which life is organized; Zygmunt Bauman’s concept of the identity of today’s liquid modernity and the concept of identity as such in it; and Paolo Virno’s implementation of the notion of a creative multitude as well as his evidence for the consequences of the paradoxical post-Fordist economy. In methodological terms, a critical examination of the relationship between creativity, capital and society is offered that focuses on understanding the crossings and paradoxes in permanent becoming.
