Taiwan’s democratic evolution” and produces knowledge about Taiwan. The point is not that these theories are wrong. They are legitimate on the terms under which they operate. However, they assume a relationship 20 ● Making of Taiwanese Identity between language and experience, which is that language can be used to refer to an experience separate from it. For Shapiro and Davies, reading Foucault and Derrida, this is an untenable assumption. Shapiro writes, Language is not about objects and experience, it is constitutive of objects and experience.

Clearly, Renan is doing the same, but Anderson goes further and attempts to explain national consciousness through an objective theory, in an argument that links national identity to the development of printing. He is, therefore, aiming to describe national subjectivity with an objective theory. Like the work on democratization discussed in chapter 1, it offers the promise of a positivist causal model for “explaining” national consciousness: collective imaginations are sustained by languages; printing creates a new field of exchange; therefore, in this causal model, the oral villages and scribal empires are dissolved into modern nations of people reading newspapers and novels.

The “Little Dragon,” the “Tiger economy,” democratization, and the idea of the emergence of Taiwanese nationhood are all located within this trajectory. In terms of Anderson’s model, Taiwanese identity is a new form of subjectivity for the Taiwanese and risks implying that prior to Taiwan’s modernization, the Taiwanese were not capable of imagining themselves nationally because of the way they used language.
