More About This Book

Overview

La educación humanista tradicional -sostiene Said- lleva mucho tiempo siendo atacada por los tecnócratas de la cultura y la política que desean un cambio profundo en la orientación de los estudios y, por extensión, en la forma de entender e interpretar el mundo. Siguiendo este razonamiento, el celebrado autor de Orientalismo expone en esta obra sus razones para seguir apostando por una forma democrática de humanismo, una manera diversa de entender la educación que incorpore al desarrollo cultural un proyecto amplio de emancipación social. Defensor apasionado de la educación humanista y de los valores democráticos frente a los excesos consumistas de la sociedad contemporánea y el pensamiento neoliberal, Edward W. Said propone un diálogo fluido y ágil entre las diferentes tradiciones culturales como estrategia necesaria para revitalizar las denostadas humanidades, con el fin de que la cultura se acerque cada vez más al hombre y a sus ideales. Las palabras, dice el profesor Said, son agentes vitales, imprescindibles, para el cambio histórico y político, al tiempo que la lectura, entendida como aprendizaje, nos ayuda a ser mejores y a cuestionar, desmontar y reformular el mundo constantemente.
Edward W. Said nos ayuda a comprender quiénes somos y qué debemos pensar si aspiramos a ser actores morales y no sirvientes del poder.
NOAM CHOMSKY
Said es una brillante y única amalgama de profesor, esteta y activista político que desafía y estimula nuestro pensamiento en todas las áreas.

Edward W. Said es uno de los principales pensadores de esta época.
