Resumen

Las principales obras de Edward Said, Orientalismo y Cultura e Imperialismo, definen lo que en este artículo se denomina vertiente externa del imperialismo cultural. Se critica que al no prestar atención a la vertiente interna, se invisibilizan y naturalizan dimensiones muy importantes de la cultura. Y al reflexionar sobre la estos aspectos que se olvidan,  se obtiene una visión completa del papel de la cultura que resulta reveladora al entender el mundo de hoy en día.
