Equality of intelligence, and the social order come together in my section of the chapter, The

Society of Contempt. Ranciere focuses on the idea of a reasonable man, and of how they act in the forced social order. The process of “society” , the human creation of organization, can be idealized similarily to Thomas Hobbes’ idea of the nation state. But in Ranciere’s idea of the pre-state, instead of there being uncivilized people out for their own interests, there are reasonable people who are all equally intelligent. Society, in Ranciere’s view, is an oppressive regime consisting of people who have placed the order of society over their freedom as bearers of reason and are obedient to the ideas and rules of the social order as they will benefit from being citizens with rights and order. To Ranciere the citizen is an inferior version of a “man” who is a person possessing of freedom from the “sentiment of the inequality of intelligence” (86) meaning a reasonable man knows that everyone is born with equal intelligence and that society is something that cannot be rationalized but must be obeyed.
