ABSTRACT
The article discusses the difficulty of writing the history of a decolonized society in Algeria and the function of history writing as a cultural and political critique. Topics covered include how historical reason is bisected by a philosophical and practical dividing line and how the concept of colony inevitably creates confusion as it involves the maintenance of a difference between nationals and foreigners within borders established through force.
