(Un)Making the Self

The figure of the human that emerges from Renaissance and Enlightenment discourses is an unmistakably imperialist entity, excluding all that it perceives as a negation of itself. This ostensibly fixed category of the human informs, if not dictates, the ways in which those who are positioned outside of “the human” experience what we call “the self.” This is to suggest that those who wish to be, and behave as, human must, as the philosopher Sylvia Wynter argues, “circumcise themselves from themselves in order to become fully human.”
