In his essay entitled “Islam through Western Eyes,” Edward Said criticizes the Western view of Islam, claiming that, since the Middle Ages, the Western world has had a flawed view of Islam. The author identifies the basis for this misleading image of Islam in the “imaginative geography dividing the world into two unequal parts.” According to this fictional geography, indeed, the world is divided into the Orient, which is seen as different and inferior, and the Occident, called also the West.

Said blames the entire range of scholars and disciplines that deal with the Orient for encouraging
