"L`Homme Composite" and the Cultural Schizophrenic in Abdullah Laroui`s "Al-Ghurba" and "Al-Yatim"

€ 56.29

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Literature - Africa, , language: English, abstract: Moroccan society is composed of many conflicting and/or correlating modes of production. The subject, by virtue of inhabiting such a `composite` society, is racked under the burdensomeness of modes of production. The inability to identify wholly with one pole of meaning production causes `l`homme composite de la société composite` a certain split. Darius Shayegan calls such a split `cultural schizophrenia.` This paper attempts to trace cultural schizophrenia and its consequences on `l`homme composite` in two novels by Abdullah Laroui `Al-Ghurba` [Alienation] and `Al-Yatim` [The Orphan]. The study of modes of production in Moroccan society, as the two novels depict, will give the paper an important insight into characters` schizophrenic behaviour. This paper is anchored on the idea that some characters are schizophrenic in the sense that they exhibit certain schizophrenic behaviours. I mean by cultural schizophrenia that the characters are `culturally` schizophrenic; that is, they display manifold facets of modes of consciousness that go hand in hand with certain modes of social organization and cultural production. This state generates feelings of alienation. I believe this cultural schizophrenia is the consequence of the conflicting dualisms that characterize these people who inhabit `les sociétés composites.`
