Does identity fusion give rise to the group – or the reverse? Politics- versus community-based groups

Research output: Contribution to journalComment / DebateOther

Abstract

This comment questions Whitehouse's theory. This comment proffers that people first choose their identity and later employ shared facts from the past to cement it. This is true with respect to two kinds of group identity: politics- and community-based identities. Contrary to Whitehouse, neither shared biology nor shared experience from the past is necessary for the constitution of either kind.
