Between Worlds: Edward Said's Heritage
American literary critic with a Palestinian origin Edward Said died on 25 September 2003 in US. With the publication of the book Orientalism in 1978, Said paved the way for some substantial debates in, and made a deep impact on, the social sciences. He attracted great attention with his active participation in Palestine question and created a new intellectual profile. Developing the framework of Orientalism and revising it with his later work Culture and Imperialism, Said continued to be the initiator of critical discussions in social sciences and humanities. It seems that serious polemics among his followers and opponents will also continue after his death. In the present work, I try to set out some important points in Said's legacy of thought and political action, and explore the general framework of his cultural heritage.
