    Epistemic Disobedience, Independent Thought and Decolonial Freedom.Walter D. Mignolo - 2009 - Theory, Culture and Society 26 (7-8):159-181.
    Once upon a time scholars assumed that the knowing subject in the disciplines is transparent, disincorporated from the known and untouched by the geo-political configuration of the world in which people are racially ranked and regions are racially configured. From a detached and neutral point of observation, the knowing subject maps the world and its problems, classifies people and projects into what is good for them. Today that assumption is no longer tenable, although there are still many believers. At stake (...)

    The Logic of the In-Visible: Decolonial Reflections on the Change of Epoch.Walter D. Mignolo - 2020 - Theory, Culture and Society 37 (7-8):205-218.
    I argue that the lived experience we, the human species, are going through in 2020 is no longer an epoch of changes but a change of epoch. Post-pandemic is becoming meaningless in a change of epoch. My argument is based on the history of the colonial matrix of power rather than in particular thematic histories which, in this case, will be the history of pandemics and the history of the economy. Both are working together, globally now, and entangled in the (...)

    Cosmopolitanism and the De-Colonial Option.Walter Mignolo - 2010 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 29 (2):111-127.
    What are the differences between cosmopolitanism and globalization? Are they “natural” historical processes or are they designed for specific purposes? Was Kant cosmopolitanism good for the entire population of the globe or did it respond to a particular Eurocentered view of what a cosmo-polis should be? The article argues that, while the term “globalization” in the most common usage refers and correspond to neo-liberal globalization projects and ambitions, and the Kantian concept of “cosmopolitanism” responded to the second wave, “de-colonial cosmopolitanism” (...)

    _Learning to Unlearn: Decolonial Reflections from Eurasia and the Americas _is a complex, multisided rethinking of the epistemic matrix of Western modernity and coloniality from the position of border epistemology. Colonial and imperial differences are the two key concepts to understanding how the logic of coloniality creates ontological and epistemic exteriorities. Being at once an enactment of decolonial thinking and an attempt to define its main grounds, mechanisms, and concepts, the book shifts the politics of knowledge from “studying the other” (...)

    Decoloniality and Phenomenology: The Geopolitics of Knowing and Epistemic/Ontological Colonial Differences.Walter D. Mignolo - 2018 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 32 (3):360-387.
    In the abstract I sent to the organizing committee of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy, I announced that I would attempt a dialogue between phenomenology and decoloniality, understanding that both are theoretical frames by means of which transcendental phenomenology and the lifeworld, on the one hand, and modernity/coloniality, on the other, came into being. Phenomenology and transcendental consciousness/lifeworld are mutually constitutive. One cannot exist without the other; and so it is for the mutual constitution of decoloniality and modernity/coloniality. (...)

    Theorizing From the Borders: Shifting to Geo- and Body-Politics of Knowledge.Madina V. Tlostanova & Walter D. Mignolo - 2006 - European Journal of Social Theory 9 (2):205-221.
    ‘Borders’ will be in the twenty-first century what ‘frontiers’ where in the nineteenth. Frontiers were conceived as the line indicating the last point in the relentless march of civilization. On the one side of the frontiers was civilization; on the other, nothing; just barbarism or emptiness. The march of civilization and the idea of the frontiers created a geographic and bodygraphic divide. Certain areas of the planet were designated as the location of the barbarians, and since the eighteenth century, of (...)

    Prophets Facing Sidewise: The Geopolitics of Knowledge and the Colonial Difference.Walter D. Mignolo - 2005 - Social Epistemology 19 (1):111 – 127.
    There is no safe place and no single locus of enunciation from where the uni-versal could be articulated for all and forever. Hindu nationalism and Western neo-liberalism are entangled in a long history of the logic of coloniality (domination, oppression, exploitation) hidden under the rhetoric of modernity (salvation, civilization, progress, development, freedom and democracy). There are, however, needs and possibilities for Indians and Western progressive intellectuals working together to undermine and supersede the assumptions that liberal thinkers in the West are (...)

Mignolo, Mario Saenz, Hans Schelkshorn & Elina Vuola (eds.) - 2000 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Enrique Dussel's writings span the theology of liberation, critiques of discourse ethics, evaluations of Marx, Levinas, Habermas, and others, but most importantly, the development of a philosophy written from the underside of Eurocentric modernist teleologies, an ethics of the impoverished, and the articulation of a unique Latin American theoretical perspective. This anthology of original articles by U.S. philosophers elucidating Dussel's thought, offers critical analyses from a variety of perspectives, including feminist ones. Also included is an essay by Dussel that responds (...)

    From the most prominent thinkers in Latin American philosophy, literature, politics, and social science comes a challenge to conventional theories of globalization. The contributors to this volume imagine a discourse in which revolution requires no temporalized march of progress or takeovers of state power but instead aims at local control and the material conditions for human dignity.

    Géopolitique de la connaissance, colonialité du pouvoir et différence coloniale.Walter Mignolo - 2001 - Multitudes 3 (3):56-71.
    The concept of modern world-system from Wallerstein is still eurocentric in front of Quijano’s concept of « coloniality of power » or that from Dussel of « transmodernity ». To show that Europe has colonised, exploited, ruled the world is not enough. We need to understand the radical ignorance of others organized by the colonial power since the 16th century. Independency is not sufficient if it maintains colonial hierarchies of knowledge and power. Decolonisaton of the mind is still on the (...)

  16. The Politics of Decolonial Investigations.Walter D. Mignolo - 2021 - Duke University Press.
    In _The Politics of Decolonial Investigations_ Walter D. Mignolo provides a sweeping examination of how coloniality has operated around the world in its myriad forms from the sixteenth century to the twenty-first. Decolonial border thinking allows Mignolo to outline how the combination of the self-fashioned narratives of Western civilization and the hegemony of Eurocentric thought served to eradicate all knowledges in non-European languages and praxes of living and being. Mignolo also traces the geopolitical origins of racialized and gendered classifications, modernity, (...)
