Then there are all those native American scholars, products of the system, working in modern history and the social sciences, who ought according to Said's argument to be propagating the biases passed on by the Orientalists, but about whose work he says nothing: Geertz, Moore, Waterbury, Burke, Brown, Hudson, Fernea, Ruedy, Dekmejian, Winder, Naff, Gendzier, Bill, Gran, English, Keddie, Mitchell, to name but some.

But can it really be so easily denied out of hand that the Islamic religion has always exerted a pervasive influence on the culture and society of its adherents?

Varisco's Reading Orientalism: Said and the Unsaid is one such attempt. Primarily, his focus is Foucauldian, where new textual representations are shaped by the existing discursive practices and texts, where continual textual production reifies the concepts and insights that are continually made.

In his sharply debated book,¹ Edward Said introduces us to the subject of ‘Orientalism’ through a broadly historical perspective which situates Europe’s interest in the Orient within the context of the general historical expansion of modern bourgeois Europe outside its traditional confines and at the expense of the rest of the world in the form of its subjugation, pillage, and exploitation.

Once possessed of this conviction, Said turns from an imaginative critic to a relentless polemicist. Philology functioned as a comparative discipline with scientific authority; indeed, it helped legitimise the assumption that the distinctiveness of language stemmed from some essential ontological distinction between ‘types’ of persons (p.233). Said gives us an emphatic no: because America has replaced France and Britain as the dominant producers of Orientalist discourse, most clearly in foreign policy experts and social scientists who “apply” their knowledge to the Orient (p.290).

Works by Silvestre de Sacy, Ernest Renan and Edward Lane – to name just a few -were just a part of the academic construction of a Benthamite Panopticon of knowledge/power (p.127), which appears to complement Said’s Foucauldian theses, where power functions through knowledge achievement and knowledge creation; the establishment of Oriental knowledge instantiates and cements Occidental power.

In a period which saw the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire, the ‘Arab Revolt’, Wilsonian self-determination, and the end of British and French colonialism, there was a new and unique challenge to the West, having to deal with native elites, native movements, native demands (p.248), which expressed ‘cultural self-definition that transcended the provincial and the xenophobic’ (p.257). Suffice it to say that von Grunebaum's view of Islamic culture as "antihumanist" was a serious proposition, and in fact not an unsympathetic one, denounced but not rebutted by Said, who seems not to recognize the difference between an antihumanist culture and an inhumane one.
