Summary/Abstract: The article seeks to revise the current mainstream interpretation of the relations between the Balkans and the West as it has emerged from the mirror reading of the Balkanism paradigm. It interrogates the grounds for interpreting the Western discourse about the Balkans in terms of Said’s Orientalism and the Balkan visions of Europe in terms of the hegemonic Western discourse.
