    attack from the “barbarians” is what justifies the members of the Empire's inhumane acts toward innocent natives.

The idea of the voiceless oppressed comes from Spivak’s influential piece about the possibility of speaking for the subaltern, in which she criticizes poststructuralist thinkers Gilles Deleuze's and Michael Foucault's claims that we can express the experience of the Other; that is, we come to know a truth, if not the truth, about the Other. Spivak's essay refutes this theory by defending that the subaltern, in fact, cannot speak, but that does not mean that they cannot become literate if they so desire.…

In his eyes, comparative philosophy represented a certain type of ressentiment and a perverse satisfaction in exposing the contradictions of the other thinker; his method was monographic. 1 Adorno, on the other hand, was opposed to a notion of a Lebensphilosophie in general, holding that any attempt to ground philosophy on a notion of lived experience was nothing but blind self-assertion.2 Undermining the spirit…

    autobiographical texts as a fragmentary literary genre.
