Édouard Glissant

Liverpool University Press

Here Glissant returns to the importance of creolization in preserving diversity, and contrasts it with the notion of integration, which suppresses diversity and exerts pressure on individuals to conform to the dominant culture of the country they are living in, thus promoting an ideal of uniformity. In this context he then discusses the motives and experiences of immigration. The final section of the chapter is devoted to the popularization of science.

Keywords:   creolization, integration, immigration, science
