Politics as Truth Procedure in Divergent Novel


Politics as a truth procedure is a collectivist politics. The political moment is only meaningful if it is materially collective or shares the same "social dimension" as others. Politics as a truth procedure is manifested in the Divergent novel through events and interactions between characters. The formation of five factions (such as Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite) as a social order system as a result of the war that destroyed Chicago and appointed the Abnegation faction as a leader in the government system was part of the procedure political truth in the Divergent novel. The formation of factions, led by the Abnegation faction, demonstrated how correctness, in the form of state and population or representative and represented—as a manifestation of an organization—is the ontological basis of the political truth procedure. This type of organization is a body of procedures for political correctness in an attempt to express the materially collective social dimension. All political ideas and actions must be justified. As a result, in a democratic order, they can be accepted collectively. In other words, collective acceptance of the choices makes determine political effectiveness. It refers to the world's transcendental law—relates to the local presence and global presence—the procedure of local political correctness is presented as a new egalitarian maxim based on the Chicagoan's (in the context of the novel) enthusiasm for past events.
