This chapter reviews the connection between Leopoldo Zea and the broadest conceivable framework of mid-twentieth-century political ideas. It interprets his intellectual evolution from the early 1940s to the mid-1990s. It considers certain historical and biographical factors which prompted Zea to determine with global processes of decolonisation and to subscribe to a particular interpretation of Latin American history. Zea precisely reflects Frantz Fanon's universalism, his refashioned humanism, and the Martiniquan's comparative perspective on decolonisation in Africa and the Americas. This chapter shows the voice and the writings of Zea that powerfully resonate beyond the political boundaries of Latin America and elucidates the field of postcolonial relations.

Keywords:   Leopoldo Zea, decolonisation, Latin American history, Africa, Latin America, universalism, humanism, Frantz Fanon
