Moral Grammar in Nietzsche

In On the Genealogy of Morals Friedrich Nietzsche writes critically of just how bound his own native German was to more widespread religious-moral beliefs, such as those which take a fixed moral subject as the beginning and end of all we can know, thereby leaving out one’s own doing as secondary to who one is. Nietzsche writes: “But there is no ‘being’ behind doing[…] – doing is everything” (GM I, 13) and thus suggests that the underlying grammar of the languages he himself knew well – all of which acknowledge if only implicitly an objective difference between subject and verb, doer and deed – were in fact wrong and had to be thought through from the ground up. One might yet take Nietzsche to task on this provocation.

According to Walter Mignolo (2013, 2007), the triumphal narrative of modernity is inseparable from coloniality, or the logic of domination, exploitation, and oppression. While modernity builds itself on a triumphal narrative of civilization, progress, and development, modernity hides its darker side, “coloniality.” “Modernity/coloniality” shows that while modernity materializes in the rhetoric of salvation, modernity, capitalism, and coloniality are inseparable aspects yoked to authority and the control of economy. The first conceptualizations of modernity/coloniality/decoloniality, launched by Quijano (2007), focus on economic-political dimensions and the question of knowledge and racism.

Within the current political discourse and political turmoil, representation of women’s races, identities, cultures, precisely of minority women, continue to be under discussion.  Women critics and writers have discussed and examined how current political discourse have changed the understanding of identity in connection with ethnicity, race, color, and language. Identity is formed and shaped by culture, beliefs, race, ethnicity, and space among several other factors.Stuart Hall argues “Identity is never complete, always in process, and always constituted within, not outside, representation.” With this in mind, howcomplex then this process of construction becomes when color, race, or religion emerges as defining factor of whether or not one belongs?

The first “controlled openings” in the Algerian mediatic space occurred in the aftermath of the 1988 social movements. NAQD partially examined this phenomenon in its issue number 8/9 (1995). At this time, the unequal flows of North-South information had been reinforced by the launching of numerous satellites that covered most of the planet. Everywhere, from Tonga to Ahmedabad, trans-border television was deployed without any constraints other than the acquisition of parabolic antennas by the public. In that special issue of NAQD we sought to interrogate the position of television which, in the context of post-modernity, appeared both as a privileged object of mass communication and an instrument of democracy.
