Abstract: The book maps what Leonidas Donskis terms the troubled identity, that is, the identity that constantly needs assurance and confirmation. It is on why and how the search for identity becomes everything for a postmodern person, an identity builder and shifter. Our infatuation with it replaces the former search for the meaning of life, becoming a mode of discourse, self-discovery, self-interpretation, and a perfect chance to reshape ourselves as the other in our country. Identity protects and hurts us. Through an identity-building-and-shifting process, argues Donskis, we can move from political majority to cultural minority, or the other way around
