In this far-ranging and penetrating work, Denise Ferreira da Silva asks why, after more than five hundred years of violence perpetrated by Europeans against people of color, is there no ethical outrage?

Rejecting the prevailing view that social categories of difference such as race and culture operate solely as principles of exclusion, Silva presents a critique of modern thought that shows how racial knowledge and power produce global space. Looking at the United States and Brazil, she argues that modern subjects are formed in philosophical accounts that presume two ontological moments—historicity and globality—which are refigured in the concepts of the nation and the racial, respectively. By displacing historicity’s ontological prerogative, Silva proposes that the notion of racial difference governs the present global power configuration because it institutes moral regions not covered by the leading post-Enlightenment ethical ideals—namely, universality and self-determination.

By introducing a view of the racial as the signifier of globality,Toward a Global Idea of Race provides a new basis for the investigation of past and present modern social processes and contexts of subjection.

In her texts,, and film-collaborations, Denise Ferreira da Silva has opposed figures of thought and modes of action that are authorized by and thus ongoingly constitutive of a genealogy of Enlightenment and Western modernist thinking. As Ferreira da Silva argues, this tradition has been integral for the racial subjugation of indigenous people and people of color. It has served as the precondition for slavery and colonialism, and today leads to continued racial violence. In her 2007 book Toward A Global Idea of Race, it is thus the transparent I of enlightened subjectivity that comes under attack.

Talk about Toward a Global Idea of Race (Barrows Lectures)


Anaginn
This is a challenging, lyrical, pessimistic, impassioned work that I learned a great deal from. It takes on "globalization" from below, in this case, not the "below" of everyday life (as cheerleaders for globalization often do), but the "below" of the slave ship hold, the zero-point of the "affectable" and "engulfable" racialized body the author considers to be the basis upon which the West -- and Enlightenment reason -- has extended its hegemony over the globe. The book refutes the oddly pervasive notion that race is a US obsession that doesn't matter to the rest of the world, and develops an original hemispheric critique of race. In the end I believe the book is too harsh -- or is read as too harsh by its enthusiasts -- on the Enlightenment, which has a more mixed historical relationship to empire, slavery and racialization than many seem to now believe. But on the whole a valuable and needed book.
POFOD
Denise Ferreira da Silva provides readers with a courageous, comprehensive, rigorous, and compelling critique of the reciprocity between race and globalism--as historically configured and deployed as well as its productive twenty-first century iterations. This book is, without any doubt, essential reading in the so-called, "post-racial" age.

The book is messed up after page 242. You will not be able to read the last chapter. This will not be useful if you need this text for a class.

It is not an easy book but it is exciting. When I read several pages I find myself putting it down and writing because the ideas in this book are inspiring. For those interested, or passionate about social theory, ethnic studies and racial discourse, it is a must read.
