The fetish of the margins: religious absolutism, anti-racism and postcolonial silence
Chetan Bhatt, pages -

Abstract

Bhatt addresses religious absolutism, anti-racism, and postcolonial silence, noting that this cultural method can be inclined to epistemologically overreach itself. This permits a range of crude suggestions that subaltern and diasporic cultures are incommensurably distant from western thinking. The article also reveals that the origins of current subaltern horrors can always be located in old texts of rationalism, humanism, and positivism.
