ABSTRACT
In this paper the author considers the matter of what he terms "cultural decentring" and the complexity of contemporary identity that this produces. He opens with a provocative question, asking "From where should we think about identity?," for one's centrality or peripherality, he suggests, has an impact on the issues raised and on our perceptions of whether we have merely to live with diversity or think more fundamentally in terms of cultural survival.

There is, in particular, a need to make academic aspirations...

    The narrative turn in social and human sciences has led us to consider identity as a narrative phenomenon.
