In Foucauldian terms
the history of the world is the history of the struggle of forces. Within this struggle
there is the hidden history of the oppressed. The unfortunates who had a voice
now can only exist as old artifacts. In one of his lectures, Michel Foucault
states that one of the characteristics of the last 15 years (50’s or 60’s) is
the rebellion of the subjugated knowledges against the global theories. He
attributes this uprising to the inability of the global theories to solve the
problems at the local level.
Therefore, this new proposal should not be dismissed rapidly. There are many
more proposals similar to this one, and they will continue appearing. It can not
be the last attempt, many more have to come.
