Let’s return for a moment to her contradictory insistence on both a distinct public realm and a latent politics of friendship. Jacques Rancière singles out Arendt when he critiques political philosophy for positing as the precondition of politics that which can only be the (provisional and unstable) outcome of political struggle—the “partition” of society and activity into the political and the nonpolitical, or the predetermination of the political dimension of life: “What is proper to politics is .
Is . . a distinctive creation of the impersonal order central to modern economies and polities. ” Early liberal theorists “argue that ‘commercial society’ introduces a historically unprecedented distinction between self-interested relations and personal bonds that are normatively free of instrumental and calculative orientations. . A newly ‘private’ world of personal relationships . . is . . ”6 The “exemplary significance of friendship,” in this view, is that it “is a prototypically ‘private’ relationship”: “[A]n ideal of friendship so quintessentially ‘private,’ so contrary to the forms of association that dominate the ‘public’ domain, is distinctive to our times .
In this case, citizenship is not just one identity among others—as in liberalism—or the dominant identity that overrides all others—as in civic republicanism. 13 For all her avowed radicalism—indeed, because of it—Mouffe cannot go all the way with political antagonism, reverting to the liberalism she would renounce via the figure of civic friendship as a relation that is neither simple “prepolitical” community nor outright hostility. Perhaps, then, liberalism cannot so easily be dismissed as erroneously, insufficiently, or cynically committed to political neutrality.
