Word of the Week: Alterity

Defined as:

State of being different

It would take an eternity to qualify just what alterity truly is.

“Not really.”

Don’t be contrary.

“My opinion just differs from yours. Alterity.”

Hmm, as the Great Dread Pirate Roberto once said, You keep using that word. I do not think it means, what you think it means.

  1. Love your email and social icon in top right corner. Is that a plugin for wordpress or what? I am looking for something. I want something clean. Tell me about it.

    Like your made up words. It is late and I must sleep.

  2. Hehe, this is a word I think we all secretly want to use to describe ourselves. In a culture where individualism is highly prized, alterity is almost like a standard we thrive for. If everyone practices and labels themselves this way…what’s the opposite of alterity?

  3. To understand alterity you have to live in a markedly different culture with different norms and practices. Then you will understand alterity.
