Ms Naples has produced a text that has made a noteworthy contribution to the debate over methodology and method in Western academia.What is clearly apparent from the text is the continued refusal of Western academics/intellectuals/activists to walk away from the racist worldview of their Enlightenment as they refuse to discard the concept of the subject and all the baggage that it carries.The salent issue then is the exiting of the racist worldview of the emnlightenment not its rehabilitation.
