Abstract

This article argues that the resilience discourse of complex adaptive system is allied with contemporary governmental discourses that responsibilise risk away from the state and on to individuals and institutions. It is argued that by mobilising ‘the system’ as the metaconcept for capturing socio-natural and socio-economic relations resilience theories naturalise and reify two abstractions: firstly, the system itself – enrolling citizens into practices that give it meaning and presence; secondly, the naturalisation of shocks to the system, locating them in a post-political space where the only certainty is uncertainty
