'My Struggle': The Congealing History


  • Phil Barker


Whatever our theoretical differences might be within the Academy, and they seem quite considerable, we all seem to be sure that racism -as discourse and political practice-takes place, and was taking place, outside, outside our discourse. So it appears that we have constructed an outside for our theoretical practice. An outside that allows us to occupy, even col-onise, the inside which is also the true-side and, one might be tempted to say, the rightside, the side of the moral high ground of racist discourse. This paper attempts to collapse these distinctions through the vehicle of the philosophy of history.
