EDGARDO LANDER: EUROCENTRIC COLONIAL THOUGHT AS AN OBSTACLE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF ANOTHER POSSIBLE WORLD
Museo Jumex organizes a series of lectures and presentations that address issues relevant to the exhibition Memories of Underdevelopment.
In the past 20 years, with the so-called progressive political processes, Latin America seemed as the continent of hope, the historical verification that, in the context of the deep civilization crisis humanity is going through, another world was possible. Today, we are confronted with the severe limitations of those experiences, largely due to not having been able to break with the Eurocentric colonial knowledge that has retained its hegemony.
Edgardo Lander is a Venezuelan sociologist, Emeritus Professor of the Universidad Central de Venezuela. Fellow of the Transnational Institute (Amsterdam) and a member of the Grupo Permanente de Alternativas al Desarrollo (Fundación Rosa Luxemburg, Quito).
