Reflexive and (sometimes) tragic

“There are times in life when the question of knowing if one can think differently than one thinks, and perceive differently than one sees, is absolutely necessary if one is to go on looking and reflecting at all.”
Michel Foucault, The Use of Pleasure.
“But every place she went
they pushed her to the other side
and that other side pushed her to the other side
of the other side of the other side. . . .
Pushed to the edge of the world
there she made her home on the edge. . . .
Always pushed toward the other side
In all lands alien, nowhere citizen.” (Anzaldua, 1994, p. 3)
Both quotes in “Postcolonial Interventions in the Rhetorical Canon: An “Other” View” by Raka Shome. In Contemporary Rhetorical Theory, 1999.
