The narratives that have asserted the connection between modernity and the Occident as well as those that have tried to decentralize the center of the modern coincide in one primordial aspect: they see modernity as a product of the West. Therefore, what is questioned is considering if it is possible to find a way to theorize the matter of modernity and place it in a global context and at the same time to allow this context to complicate instead of simply to revert the narrative logic of modernity. In this sense, one of the issues that the author suggests to review is the manner the interactions between the Occident and the non-Occident are conducted to be able to take on the staging that defines the modern by the constitutive difference of its space and its representation.
