Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes an epistemological critique reflection on being a minority. Drawing on philosophical anthropology of Paul Ricoeur and building on minority literatures of French Canada, it has two complementary directions. On the one hand, it queries the ignorance of cultural minorities in the era of globalization from the hypothesis that this misunderstanding came out, beyond the indifference displayed by the majority cultures, with epistemological malaise. On the other hand, the relationship to self minority constituting about a key element struck by this discomfort, the task develops a model of the report, which focuses on the notion of consciousness altéritaire. So it aims to be light that not only minority cultures are carriers of immense heuristic wealth, but above all these riches are accessible only if fully recognize the need for theoretical and critical thinking specific living conditions of the minority issue.

Keywords: globalization; French Canada; Paul Ricoeur; cultural minorities; epistemological malaise; consciousness altéritaire
