I do not wish to press the tired and overused charge of "Eurocentrism" against such an argument. What is considerably more problematic than the inappropriate application of "external" norms is the way in which the norms of Western liberalism become at once the measure and mentor of minority culturesWestern liberalism,warts and all, as a salvage operation, if not salvation itself.

This idea about the oscillation between the other and the self also rehearses, to some extent, the Spivak-Parry argument. The native is at all times the native (the self) but at the same time is at all times in opposition to, in oscillation with, the Other (the dominant). Since the word "complexity"will arise very frequently in this work, I should say here that "complexity" for me is not a synonym either for "the sublime" or "transcendence",though sometimes it may appear that I am using it in that way "Complexity"for me is the richness and depth of either an analytical structure or a work of literature which completely resists reduction to a simple formula;which is itself so--well, complexthat any moment of description is of necessity a transient moment of experience of the text.
