Zitat des Tages: Edward Said

von Ben

If one believes with Gramsci that an intellectual vocation is socially possible as well as desireable, then it is an inadmissible contradiction at the same time to build analyses of historical experience around exclusions, exclusions that stipulate, for instance, that only women can understand feminine experience, only Jews can understand Jewish suffering, only formerly colonial subjects can understand colonial experience.
(Edward Said, Culture and imperialism, 1993)
