Gongsun would not seek re-Worlding since any representation of a sited geo-cultural distinction could risk the over-extension of naming. For Gongsun, despite that individualized realities are corrupted by emotion and social control, only individualized realities could count however flawed they could appear to whichever philosophical perspective. The danger of re-Worlding lies in the proclivity of making the sited experience a non-reality. Gongsun Long’s insistence on an imagined individualized reality that is ready to check on the hegemonic naming, undergo instant amnesia, and renounce any higher-name opportunity in the world amounts to a political position that can be temporarily called post-post-Western IR.
