Abstract

Failure theory is really important, as it is applicable in everyday life. Failure theory is approached from the perspective of George Constantin the volume entitled "Failure theory: Failure as a form of positive manifestation of difference. Arguments for an ethics of the interval ”, a volume that was published by Lumen Publishing House from Iasi, Romania, in 2018. Of course we avoid failure, because we are a society that seeks success and because we are a society that is afraid of difference. It is precisely these things that George Constantin calls upon us to talk about: about failure as a positive value or as a form of difference, about failure as an inherent positivity, because as long as all things move in the same direction, nothing will really change. When we talk about success, especially in the postmodern society, we speak first of all of uniformity, because despite the appetite for individual autonomy, the postmodern society, being a consumerist one, is, in principle a mass society. All the more difference is needed as a failure to these uniformities, precisely as a deconstruction of uniformity. Failure is a deconstruction of illusory success that occurs as a result of originality and stepping out of the interval.
