Die Paradoxien der eurozentrierten kolonialen Moderne

  • Aníbal Quijano
Schlagworte: Kolonialismus, Eurozentrismus, Lateinamerika, Moderne

Abstract

Modernity cannot be separated from colonialism, we have to consider the specific colonialist mode of power, which is characterised by “rassialisation” on the one hand and a combination of all forms of exploitation under the rule of capital in order to produce commodities for the world market. Colonial modernity is in several aspects eurocentrical: providing the conditions of existence for a eurocentrical industrial capital and constituting a special horizon of meaning. The paradoxes and contradictions included in this process are analysed with focus on the history of “Latin America”.
