Eric Fassin tackles the same theme from a sociology of knowledge angle. He shows how the ‘rhetoric of America’ in France has served the political purposes of French intellectuals, who found in the discourse of culture and ethnicity a welcome replacement for their outworn discourse of class. Fassin thus hints at a sociology of multiculturalism, whose topic is not oppressed groups but intellectuals making claims about them on their behalf.
