As the first book to analyze the work of Fanon as an existential-phenomenological of human sciences and liberation philosopher, Gordon deploys Fanon's work to illuminate how the "bad faith" of European science and civilization have philosophically stymied the project of liberation. Fanon's body of work serves as a critique of European science and society, and shows the ways in which the project of "truth" is compromised by Eurocentric artificially narrowed scope of humanity--a circumstance to which he refers as the crisis of European Man. In his examination of the roots of this crisis, Gordon explores the problems of historical salvation and the dynamics of oppression, the motivation behind contemporary European obstruction of the advancement of a racially just world, the forms of anonymity that pervade racist theorizing and contribute to "seen invisibility," and the reasons behind the impossibility of a nonviolent transition from colonialism and neocolonialism to postcolonialism.
Lewis R. Gordon teaches Africana philosophy and contemporary religious thought at Brown University. He is author of Bad Faith and Antiblack Racism (Humanities), Fanon and the Crisis of European Man: An Essay onPhilosophy and the Human Sciences (Routledge), and HerMajesty's Other Children: Philosophical Sketches from aNeocolonial Age (Rowman & Littlefield). He is also co-editor of Fanon: A Critical Reader (Blackwell) and Black Texts and Textuality: Constructing andDe-Constructing Blackness (Rowman & Littlefield).
"Lewis R. Gordon's well-written and clearly organized essay focuses on racial identity...Unlike most research on race..they have asked the correct question: What is race and who benefits from it. Antonio McDaniel,University of Pennsylvania."
