Abstract

Dualism, a concept that simply tends to view the world in terms of “either-or” categories rather than “both . . . and,” has been examined and analyzed as the primary contributor to and cause of Western domination. The dangers of dualistic thinking are, according to Hodge et al., habit forming and unconscious. The Western practitioners of such thinking trace their ideology to the ancient Greek philosophers whose ideas support and reinforce existing oppressive patterns.
