Decoloniality and phenomenology: The geopolitics of knowing and epistemic/ontological colonial differences
Copyright © 2018 The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA I attempt a dialogue between phenomenology (Husserl) and decoloniality (Quijano), understanding that both are theoretical frames by means of which transcendental phenomenology and the lifeworld, on the one hand, and modernity/coloniality, on the other, came into being. Phenomenology and transcendental consciousness/lifeworld are mutually constitutive. One cannot exist without the other; and so it is for the mutual constitution of decoloniality and modernity/coloniality. There cannot be modernity/coloniality without decoloniality, and vice versa. The axis around which the dialogue I attempt here turns is the geopolitics of knowledge and colonial difference, structuring and ranking all spheres of life.
