    Abstract

    Ideology forms social and political actors. This claim is disconcerting for those who believe it rules out the contribution of ‘agency’ in social, political and ideological change. In this article, I consider the work of Reinhart Koselleck and Michel Foucault in tandem to demonstrate that such concerns are misplaced. Together, Koselleck and Foucault can aid us in understanding how ideology interpellates individuals as combatants, or in other words how it equips social and political actors in modernity with the capacity to contest. From this perspective, we can conceive of ideology forming social and political actors while maintaining that the contests and struggles in which they participate are key for understanding social, political and ideological change in the modern world.
