Said’s Critics The critiques of Orientalism come from different quarters. Said is criticized by Ahmad (1992) from a Marxist perspective, for two reasons: first, for homogenizing the West by focusing on ideology and culture, and not on capitalism, overlooking the material repressive enforcement of colonialism; second, for his privileged academic position in an institutional framework that is complicit in the reproduction of the current divisions of labor. Porter (1983) accuses Said of overlooking variations in history and constructing a fixed East versus a fixed West divide.
Loomba 1998, 47) In this binary opposition, the relationship of dependency becomes explicit: the construction of the “Other” as backward, is necessary for the construction of the “self” as culturally superior, which justifies the exercise of domination and control as a burden to intervene in the name of progress— to civilize, to educate, to modernize, and to develop the Other. In the analysis carried out in Orientalism, the Western/European ethnocentric and hegemonic construction of the “Other” is not disinterested and is determined by the will to dominate as the relationship between the cultures in question is unequal and the knowledge produced is “consistently put at the service of the colonial administration” (Moore- Gilbert, 1997, 38).
Orientalism Foucault’s insight that knowledge is not innocent but profoundly connected with the operations of power—what he calls the “relations between discursive formations and non-discursive domains (institutions, political events, economic practices and processes)” (Foucault 1972, 162)—is what informs the text of Orientalism, Said’s first book, published in 1978. This is a book about Western representations of non-Western cultures in which Said points out the extent to which knowledge about the Orient as it was produced and circulated in Europe was an ideological necessary accompaniment of coercive power and the justifications for colonialism.
