The Cultural

. Maalouf develops an idea of identity of cultural property. Lvi affirms categorically to us that it does not exist correlation nor relation cause-effect between biological cultural and flat diversity. The autobiography of Maalouf is, from this perspective, a cumulative history, a culture developed thanks to its multiple properties, to how all origins have interchanged and the diversity that shows Maalouf to us is similar the cultural diversity that Lvi-Strauus says that it is generated when there is cultural interchange. Maalouf does a route by the modules, misestimating the supposed existence of the ethnic groups and insisting on the manipulations realised under pretext of the beliefs, but as it bases essentially on dichotomy we versus others of the theories of the etnicidad of Barth, to which he adds the property to one or several groups to him: When they feel that the other constitute a threat for their ethnic group, religion or its nation, everything what they can make to move away that threat seems to them perfect, allowed even arrive at the slaughter (Genocide). At present of the globalisation, few cases of integration projects occur very to accept the cultural and personal identity like an enriching process.

Every time the affirmations of the furious identity against the different one are deadlier. One calls to each other, everywhere, like distinguishing fact, a race, a nation or a religion, that make different, shown us with pride, but set out not like an enriching element but differentiator. This radicalismo is the one that at the time maintained to Hitler in the power giving rise that fatal genocide, the one that maintains to that puts a pump in Madrid, the one that decides to star an airplane in a building. Killer identity is the birth of , that is not other that the authoritarianism that denies the freedom like a value of the social coexistence.
