Enlightenment and the question of the other: A postmodern audition [Book Review]

Human Studies 25 (3):297-306 (2002)
This paper examines the other side of Enlightenment which privileges the authority and autonomy of reason for human progress and emancipation. It contends that Enlightenment marginalizes and denigrates the categories of (1) body, (2) woman, (3) nature, and (4) non-West which happen to be four central landmarks of postmodern thought.
