Kapitalisme i øst og vest: Vivek Chibber, Subaltern Studies og universalismens nødvendiget

Published: 20 Jan 2020
Summary:

The article discusses the Indian debate about universalism, eurocentrism and post colonialism, based on Vivek Chibber´s critique of Subaltern Studies in his book Postcolonialism and the Specter of Capital. It argues that on most points, Chibber´s critique is valid, and endorses his defence of a conditional universalism. At the same time, some aspects of his own approach are criticised, in particular his defence of rational choice theory.
