Identity vicissitudes into the colonial field. Reflections on Frantz Fanon's thought

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Fanon; Identity; Colonial Field; Interpellation; Recognition.

Fanon's reflections concerning identity construction are awkward and reveal a contrast with a universalistic logic. The task of this essay is to call attention to the unsteadiness and transience of identity, by examining categories of Western modern tradition - such as Hegel's concept of recognition and the interpellation described by Althusser in his reinterpretation of Marxism - and showing their unsuitability for the colonial context.
