Example text

These divisions were created to get closer to the nuances the concept contains. This division is an important analytical tool when examining and understanding the individual’s actions and rationalities. I have, in this work, wanted to identify the societal processes and ideas which lay behind our need to use the structural stories, not least as to avoid the structural stories contributing to the escalating individualization of mobility where the individual stands alone with responsibility for the side effects of mobility.

Often the freedom-creating automobility becomes the glue which holds demands and possibilities together. In this way, the organization of everyday life becomes a mobility generator, which is due to the wish to overcome everything and to disengage from the social relations that traditions have locked us into, making us instead want to engage in new and different communities (Giddens 1991; Beck 1997; Læssøe 1999). These communities are no longer formed on the basis of physical proximity, but rather the car makes them possible in spite of the physical proximity.

In order for everyday life not to be made up of too many confusing choices – and to avoid ending up in what Giddens characterizes as a paralysis of alternatives – we choose a lifestyle. A lifestyle has some given choices, which the individual in pre-modern times did not have to reflect on as individuals were bound to traditions. ‘A lifestyle involves a cluster of habits and orientations, and hence has a certain unity – important to a continuing sense of ontological security – that connects options in a more or less ordered pattern’ (Giddens 1991, 82), At the same time, the lifestyle gives ‘material form to a particular narrative of self-identity’ (Giddens 1991, 81).
