Concepto de "desterritorización"

Concepto de "desterritorización"

La complejidad de la sociedad moderna conlleva la disfunción de perder el apego por el terrritorio en el cual se vive. La “desterritorización” es el proceso que conduce al individuo a sustentar su vida sin ligazones con el espacio físico, sin un suelo compartido, sin un sitio material del cual obtener recursos.
