In an introductory chap-ter, Zygmunt Bauman argues that, in contrast to animals (which feel basic fears like a kind of impulse to escape in specific situations), men have the ability to elaborate a secondary fear characteri-zed by being “socially and culturally” recycled. Oddly.

      There is no rest for liquid moderns. We must keep on the move, reinventing ourselves if we are to triumph over our fears of becoming obsolete at work, friendless, unloved. Bauman's latest book, Author: Guardian Staff.   This book is about the central figure of our contemporary, 'liquid modern' times - the man or woman with no bonds, and particularly with none of the fixed or durable bonds that would allow the effort of self-definition and self-assertion to come to a rest/5(20).

    Books shelved as overcoming-fear: A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon, Mirette on the High Wire by Emily Arnold McCully, After the Fall: How Humpty Du. This liquid modern world of ours, like all liquids, cannot stand still and keep its shape for long. Everything keeps changing - the fashions we follow, the events that intermittently catch our attention, the things we dream of and things we fear.

In the Liquid Modern society, how one lives becomes a biographical solution to systemic contradictions – risks and contradictions go on being socially produced; it is just the duty and the necessity to cope with them which are being individualised.

A gap is growing between individuality as fate and the ability for genuine self-assertion. Instead of referring to modernity and postmodernity, Bauman writes of a transition from solid modernity to a more liquid form of social life. For Bauman, the consequences of this move to a liquid modernity can most easily be seen in contemporary approaches to self-identity.
