The role of colonialism in the development of modern society is by now well acknowledged. Gurminder Bhambra, however, has argued not only that the injustices of the past need to be repaired, as many thinkers within the decolonial and post-colonial movement have urged, but that this reparative work must also be extended to the social sciences themselves. In a discussion with Albena Azmanova, she addresses this project of radical decolonization of the Western mind.
