Antagonistic Subjectivations: Frantz Fanon and Postcolonial Critique

Sandro Luce (University of Salerno)

Fanon’s reflections concerning identity construction rise awkward questions and reveal a contrast with a universalistic approach. His interdisciplinary method – between phenomenology, Marxism and psychiatry – is extremely fruitful for calling into question some categories of modern tradition, showing its profound inadequacy in the colonial context.
These analyses, although historically contextualized, have a deep impact on the present time,  marked by racist phenomena and new essentialist constructions.
