The notion of ‘civilization’, dismissed by the social sciences and, especially, by anthropology since long time, is now back in the spotlight and it plays a political role which clearly reveals its eurocentric and racist premises. The article tries to deconstruct this notion by re-telling the story of that «parochial universalism» that has become the founding discourse of western ideology and that lay behind the colonialist enterprise and the mass-murders of native populations.
