Both in Native Realm, where he traces his own manoeuverings as a servant of
the regime (cultural attache to the Polish Embassy in Washington, then in Paris),
and in The Captive Mind, where he analyses the trap in which the Polish writers
were caught and subjects four readily identifiable specimens to his dissecting
scalpel, Milosz insists that the East European situation was not strictly
comparable to the Soviet one. Contrary to what his anti-Communist readers may
have thought, the ...

. In this essay Weil maintains that there is something sacred at the center of even'
human being — and this sacred center is not the personality, that combination of
attitudes and habits produced by historical circumstances. No, it is divine spark, ...

Journals should be published devoted to the phenomenon of the captive mind.
As far as possible the works of non- captive scholars should be disseminated in

From Political Eschatology to Religious Revolutionary. Alatas provides
illustrations of the workings of the captive mind from development studies. The
example given is Hagen's view that digging with the Southeast Asian hoe is an “
awkward process,” but the spade, which is a better instrument, can only be of
limited use in low-income societies to the extent that shoes are not widely used (
Hagen, 1962: 31–32, cited in Alatas, 1972: 15). Alatas suggested that Hagen did
