Abstract and Keywords
“Frantz Fanon” offers a summary of the life of famed psychiatrist and philosopher Frantz Fanon followed by an outline of his critical thought on the problem of therapy and the construction of rigorous human science in an age marked by colonialism, racism, and other forms of dehumanization. Fallacious models of psychopathology and normality, premised on a problematic philosophical anthropology, are consequences the overcoming of which require decolonization of knowledge, the dialectics of double consciousness, and forms of radical critique of reason through which what could be called “Fanonian phenomenology” comes to the fore.
