Eduardo Mendieta, "Global Fragments: Latinamericanisms, Globalizations, and Critical Theory"
State University of New York Press | 2007-10-04 | ISBN: 0791472574 | 226 pages | PDF | 1,2 MB
Global Fragments offers an innovative analysis of globalization that aims to circumvent the sterile dichotomies that either praise or demonize globalization. Eduardo Mendieta applies an interdisciplinary approach to one of the most fundamental experiences of globalization: the mega-urbanization of humanity. The claim that globalization unsettles our epistemic maps of the world is tested against a study of Latin America. Mendieta also recontextualizes the work of three major theorists of globalization--Enrique Dussel, Cornel West, and Jrgen Habermas--to show how their thinking reflects engagement with central problems of globalization and, conversely, how globalization itself is exemplified through the reception of their work. Beyond the epistemic hubris of social theories that seek to accept or reject a globalized world, Mendieta calls for a dialogic cosmopolitanism that departs from the mutuality of teaching and learning in a world that is global but not totalized.
"Mendieta brilliantly and imaginatively weaves together critical social theories from global theory, Latin American philosophy, Frankfurt School critical theory, and African American philosophy to put forth a synthetic vision of global ethics from the perspective of the oppressed." -- Cynthia Willett, author of The Soul of Justice: Social Bonds and Racial Hubris
"The author creatively addresses globalization in an interdisciplinary way that links pertinent questions--often discussed in isolation--emerging from the fields of history, philosophy, and literature." -- Manfred B. Steger, author of Globalism: Market Ideology Meets Terrorism, Second Edition
