Even she sees herself belonging to the apparatus of 'Western' education and also combines its efforts with her own theories, she is very critical towards the (self-)positioning of many intellectuals: “The intellectual is not free to abdicate, he is imprisoned within an institutional discourse which says what is universal is universal without noticing that it is specific too” (Spivak 1990: 4). 'The Intellectual', according to Spivak, is ensnared in an educational system, that produces mostly 'Eurocentric' or 'Western' ideologies as well as serving the 'epistemic violence' of knowledge that often seems to belong to 'Europe' or other Western societies [27] which are in many ways “complicit with Western international economic interests“ (Spivak 1988b: 271).
