The Intimate Enemy
Ashis Nandy - prolific writer and a scholar.
The Intimate Enemy - the book, which consists two essays: "The Psychology of Colonialism: Sex, Age and Ideology in British India" and "The Uncolonized Mind: A Post-colonial View of India and the West"
West as a model of social change
Colonization of the mind. Psychological resistance to colonialism
Modern <-> Primitive
West <-> Non-West
To be anti-colonial is predicted and controlled
Non-West itself is a contraction o the West
"Brave New World" - no "bandit-kings"
West is in structure and minds

Culture and People's roots
Teaching of Hugo of St.Victor
"The person who finds his homeland sweet is still a tender beginner; he to whom every soil is as his native one is already stron; but he is perfect to whom the entire world is as a foreign place"
History VS Culture
Imperialist domination requires cultural oppression
Colonial domination creates a system to repress the cultural life of the colonized people to provoke and develop cultural alienation
Indigenous elites <-> Popular masses
Thank you for your attention!
