  Article:   THE POLITICAL USES OF SPATIALITY: TEMPORALITY, TELOS, LEGITIMACY.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  

This paper aims to present several of the most important aspects concerning political spatiality and its various dimensions, such as the physical, symbolic and charismatized aspects. This analysis will serve a two-fold purpose: 1) depicting the main types of spatiality, while concentrating more on the difficulty in defining and categorising sacred space; 2) how the use of spatiality can aid in the creation of ideological hegemony, of social homogeneity and, ultimately, of a distinct teleological narrative which may legitimize communities, as well as modern ideocratic regimes.

Keywords: spatiality, hegemony, regime, charismatization, legitimacy
