In philosophy, the Other is the conception of the self as a distinct entity, but it is has another more sinister connotation in psychology and sociology as the subjugated altern characterised by difference. We explore the Other through the lenses of colonisation and neoliberalism and discuss how the western history of othering has influenced society in myriad ways, from racism and inequality to world war.
