Resumen

ZAPATA SILVA, CLAUDIA. EDWARD SAID AND CULTURAL OTHERNESS. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2008, n.498, pp.55-73. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622008000200005.

Edward Said (1935-2003) has produced a vast work devoted to culture, literature, music and politics. This article approaches specifically the concept of culture that has guided Said in his studies as well as his critical opinion of views that extol difference and otherness, conceived as radical distance between West and East. This analysis is centered on his books most closely associated with postcolonial thought, where Said explicitly relates culture with unequal power relationships, a conflictive tangled web in which he exposes the involvement of the western disciplines, and therefore the importance assigned to his debate with anthropology.

Palabras clave : Culture; otherness; difference; diversity; humanism.
