Chapter 7 ties together the theoretical and the topical chapters by using the sentiment of disgust to explore the engagement with unpleasantness and strangeness that is required in democratic practice. I argue that the “digestive subjectivity” developed in previous chapters offers some resources for creating a more robust commitment to collective living, but lacks the necessary political purchase to anchor a properly democratic theory.
