I've recently read Edward Said's book Orientalism but throughout reading, I didn't really find an explicit solution to Orientalism. Though the thing I could see take form as a solution would be his cultural relativism; that culture should be judged/or seen through the culture itself, and not through the comparison of other cultures (because of the existing dialectic relationship of domination between the occident and the orient). Can this be read from Said's book? And if so could this relate to Charles Taylors "Politics of Recognition", wherein Taylor describes how the best solution to multiculturalism is both recognizing that everyone is equal but also recognize their differences - through a fusion of horizons by which culture is a value in itself.
Said doesn't speak much on multiculturalism, more so indirectly. Therefore it's hard to determine what he would think about politics of recognition and multiculturalism. But could one assume that Said's solution would relate to Taylor's?
