State what the main point of the argument is and relate it to one of the three books we read, Heart of Darkness, Benito Cereno or The Reluctant Fundamentalist, knowing that the first two apply to western perspectives on Africa, not Arabs:

The following is a passage from Edward Said’s book Orientalism. State what the main point of the argument is and relate it to one of the three books we read, Heart of Darkness, Benito Cereno or The Reluctant Fundamentalist, knowing that the first two apply to western perspectives on Africa, not Arabs:
“The European is a close reasoner; his statements of fact are devoid of any ambiguity; he is a natural logician, albeit he may not have studied logic; he is by nature sceptical and requires proof before he can accept the truth of any proposition; his trained intelligence works like a piece of mechanism. The mind of the Oriental, on the other hand, like his picturesque streets, is eminently wanting in symmetry. His reasoning is of the most slipshod description. Although the ancient Arabs acquired in a somewhat higher degree the science of dialectics, their descendants are singularly deficient in the logical faculty. They are often incapable of drawing the most obvious conclusions from any simple premises of which they may admit the truth. Endeavor to elicit a plain statement of facts from any ordinary Egyptian. His explanation will generally be lengthy, and wanting in lucidity. He will probably contradict himself half-a-dozen times before he has finished his story. He will often break down under the mildest process of cross-examination.”
