Les differences qui emergent des quetes identitaires contemporaines accentuent, dans un mouvement antagoniste de repli corporatiste et de reconnaissance de la pluralite du social, le sentiment que l'identite moderne se fragmente en une constellation de possibles. L'identite sourde fait partie de cette constellation. Elle decoule de conceptions qui depassent le simple interet categoriel pour faire jaillir une communaute de sens. Ainsi, pour plusieurs personnes se reconnaissant dans cette identite, la condition qui les unit est d'abord articulee a partir d'un attachement collectif a une culture specifique, et surtout, a une langue qui leur est propre. Bien sur, ce deplacement du stigmate ne s'effectue pas dans l'oubli des denominations et des traitements anterieurs concernant la surdite et doit composer avec la sedimentation des representations sociales ayant investi la surdite comme caracteristique identitaire. Les Sourds interrogent definitivement les nouvelles formes du lien social mettant en scene des specificites qui s'expriment comme differences emancipatrices. Un ouvrage de reference en la matiere est le bienvenu a une epoque ou plusieurs penseurs, mais aussi acteurs du monde de l'education et de la readaptation, s'interrogent sur cette difference, mais aussi sur la difference en general comme vecteur d'identification."
