Methodology of The Oppressed: A Review - Sunday, 31 December 2006 - 12:00 PM
“Manifest landmarks transfigure when the foundational underplate that makes their very existence possible shifts upward…”  With this daunting sentence, critical theorist Chela Sandoval opens her text Methodology of the Oppressed .  Dare to proceed further??  Like Scylla and Cherybdis, this sentence has turned many a reader back.  Yet, those who dare to go on are rewarded with a thrillingly insightful account of the times in which we live and a refreshingly hopeful take on the future of humanity.  In an age when many have lost faith in the ability of a beleaguered humanity to resist the shape-shifting forces of oppression and dehumanization, Sandoval comes forth with a “toolkit” for doing just that.
