Encounter between the Orient and the West. Orientalism in Leone Caetani’s Work II. Orientalism and Islamology
Dr. Carmen Emanuela Ragusa, PhD
East - West dialectics has a more than ever urgent actuality today. Leone Caetani anticipated the potential implications of colonization that had already occurred during the occupation of Africa in the early 20th century: in his historiographic work, he focused on the ideas such as "experience" and "people" and their importance in historical research. He synthesized new historiographic concepts, such as those of "Decadenzidee", marked by the intersection of religion and democracy, ethics and politics immanent to the dialectics in the dominated – dominant relationships. He identified the only possible key to coexistence in mutual recognition that is dedicated to peace and respect.
