According to Giddens, living in the age of modernity presents several dilemmas related to sense of self. How
would you describe the dilemma of unification vs. fragmentation?
In the dilemma of powerlessness vs. appropriation what is the main distinction between authority in modern
versus pre-modern times? How does Giddens perspective on powerlessness in modern society differ from
most others who write on this topic?
Looking at these aspects from a broader, societal view, how, according to Giddens, does fragmentation of
modernity along large scale systems impact personal experiences and interactions?
