First Online: 14 November 2016. I came to know the work of Edward Said in the early 1970s, when I invited him to contribute an essay to the first issue boundary 2 on the question of the postmodern. He informed me that he was a Palestinian student at Mount Hermon Preparatory School during the time between 1951 and 1953 when I was teaching there, and that he, an alien Arab in a New England Puritan environment, admired me, a Greek-American, for my reputation as a rebel against the Mount Hermon Puritan work ethic.

Hannah Arendt and Edward Said : an affiliation in counterpoint.

Exiles in the City: Hannah Arendt and Edward W. Said in Counterpoint, by William V. Spanos, explores the affiliative relationship between Arendt’s and Said’s thought, not simply their mutual emphasis on the importance of the exilic consciousness in an age characterized by the decline of the nation-state and the rise of globalization, but also on the oppositional politics that a displaced consciousness enables. The pairing of these two extraordinary intellectuals is unusual and controversial because of their ethnic identities. In radically secularizing their comportment towards being, their exilic condition enabled them to undertake inaugural critiques of the culture of the nation-state system of Western modernity.
