Foucault's post-structuralism broke with the idea of cultures as systemic structures and shifted attention to structures of knowledge within and across cultures instead. Jacques Derrida (1978) rephrases the question of otherness in terms of identity and difference, thereby returning it to the wider terrain of philosophical questioning where it had originated. In Derrida's method of the deconstruction of texts, the dissembly of structures continues infinitesimally. These influences - idealist philosophy, phenomenology, structuralism, hermeneutics, post-structuralism, deconstruction - are part of the broad stream of cultural and postcolonial studies that now examines how others are represented in discourse and images.

To a varying extent these owe their present salience to government-sponsored initiatives, which are made possible by rentier oil economies.
