On the Cunning of Imperialist Reason: A Questioning Note or Preamble for a Debate

Theory, Culture and Society 16 (1):59-62 (1999)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This brief note takes the form of challenging a number of assumptions and generalizations in the article by Bourdieu and Wacquant. It calls for the invention of a new vocabulary to address the issues which have arisen for intellectuals in the context of the loss in authority of once secure foundations of modern critical enterprise, and the increasing commodification of intellectual work. The tone of the note seeks to encourage a debate towards establishing a more fruitful agenda for understanding the complex relays between identity, power, governance, globalization, capitalism.
