Why have those who study colonial authority and its representations ignored Hirschman’s observation? As we shall see, it is not official archives that bracketed sentiment from their cultures of evidence and documentation, but our preemptive readings of them. P A R E N TA L F E E L I N G S AND TORN HEARTS Education is used to train members of a class and to divide them from other men as surely as from their own passions. (Williams 1977:137) On May 23, on a Monday evening in l848 when most members of Batavia’s European community would otherwise have been just stirring from their late afternoon naps, there was an extraordinary meeting of an extraordinary mix of society, unprecedented in the history of the Dutch Netherlands Indies.
Indies’ colonial authorities would have agreed. Placing colonial governance in such a frame makes more sense. A joint commitment to reason and to affective knowledge was central to nineteenth-century imperial polities and a basic tension within them. Gary Wilder refers to ‘‘colonial humanism’’ as a new way of exercising political authority in the early twentieth-century Greater France (1999:33–55). But in the Indies, the fact that men of force were men of feeling intervenes earlier: by the l830s and l840s in debates over social projects, public welfare, and in concerns over the viability of Dutch authority.
