Questioning Eurocentrism: A Reply to Gregor McLennan

Gregor McLennan says he is replying to my article on ‘Eurocentrism and its Avatars’. It seems to me what he is doing is taking off from my article to criticize ‘post-colonial theorists’, who are also characterized as ‘maximal anti-Eurocentrics’. The justification seems to be that ‘in places Wallerstein seems to agree’ with them. I leave the real targets to make their own reply if they wish. I shall restrict myself to clarifying my own position.
