This chapter reflects more generally on the Western perspective against which the examples in this book have been analyzed. It discusses how the West, or rather the forces that shaped European power elites, silenced or dismissed other modalities of thought by rendering them unintelligible. The identity of the West has been framed by the accumulated memory of such processes and mechanisms of cultural expansion.
