Revolutionary Inhumanism: Fanon's On Violence

Revolutionary Inhumanism: Fanon's On Violence

(p.192) CHAPTER EIGHT Revolutionary Inhumanism: Fanon's On Violence
Caribbean Critique

Nick Nesbit

Liverpool University Press

Analyzes Fanon's critique of violence in Wretched of the Earth. Argues that that Fanon theorizes the absolute necessity of militant, revolutionary struggle to overthrow colonialism in Algeria. As a general critique of colonial violence, Fanon's text is thus taken to posit the incommensurability of every situation of colonial violence, and the distinct, rational necessity of violence (or non-violence) in each.

Keywords:   Frantz Fanon, Wretched of the Earth, Violence, Algerian Revolution
