  Fanon page
Fanon was born in 1925, to a middle-class family in the French colony of Martinique.
Fanon inflects his medical and psychological practice with the understanding that racism generates harmful psychological constructs that both blind the fl man to his subjection to a universalized white norm and alienate his consciousness.
Furthermore, this emphasis on the rural underclass highlights Fanon's disgust with the greed and politicking of the comprador bourgeoisie in new African nations.

 Het EVANGELIE van THOMAS - De verklaring van de geheime woorden
Fanon was redacteur van Al-Moejahid, het in Tunesië uitgegeven blad van het FLN, en maakte in 1958 deel uit van de Algerijnse delegatie op de Conferentie van Afrikaanse Volkeren te Acera.
Fanon onthult aan zijn kameraden - aan sommigen van hen vooral, aan degenen die een beetje te veel verwesterd zijn de solidariteit tussen de mensen in het moederland en hun koloniale zaakwaarnemers.
Fanon herinnert er aan dat het nog niet zo lang geleden is dat psychiaters op een congres zich het hoofd braken over de criminaliteit onder inlanders: die lui doden elkaar maar, dat het niet gewoon meer is, zeiden ze; de hersenschors van de Algerijn moet onderontwikkeld zijn.

Fanon argued that white colonialism imposed an existentially false and degrading existence upon its fl victims to the extent that it demanded their conformity to its distorted values.
Fanon demonstrates how the problem of race, of color, connects with a whole range of words and images, starting from the symbol of the dark side of the soul.

 Review: Franz Fanon - A life by David Macey
Fanon was born on 20 June 1925 on the Caribbean island of Martinique.
Fanons’ family were reasonably well off however, and could afford to send him to the local lycee, an opportunity only available to 4% of fl children at the time.
Fanon primarily employed medical approaches to the treatment of mental illness but was well able to place symptoms in their social context, not something all doctors or psychiatrists can do easily to this day.

 2 Imperialism: Its Decline and Legacy
One of the keenest modern critics of colonialism was Frantz Fanon (1925-1961).
A fl from the French West Indies, Fanon was familiar with racial discrimination, and he was influenced by Marxism.
Yet the memory of colonial exploitation that Fanon so vividly described persists, kept alive by the poverty and powerlessness of the new African states.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Fanon looks at the psychological effect this all has on the fl man. In “The Negro and psychopathology”, he brings about various terms and theories about why the relationship the white man has with the fl man, and the previous one’s influence on the latter’s psyche, self image and perception of his world.
Fanon uses the word “object” as opposed to “subject” here: the object is what is acted on, looked at, and thought of, while the subject acts, looks, and thinks.
Fanon also mentions the plight of the Caribbean Black man who returns to his homeland only to be pegged as “assimilated”, he no longer is one of them, since by taking on the characteristics of a white European, he has placed himself above his compatriots.

Frantz Fanon was a French psychiatrist turned Algerian revolutionary of Martinican origin, and one of the most important and controversial thinkers of the postwar period.
A veritable "intellect on fire," Fanon was a radical thinker with original theories on race, revolution, violence, identity and agency.
Thus Fanon's "untidy dialectic," Gibson contends, is a philosophy of liberation that includes cultural and historical issues and visions of a future society.

Fanon was not just an armchair theorist with an incisive mind but a practical man who elected to get involved in the fight for freedom in the Algerian war of independence.
Fanon's thinking was influenced by his analysis of testimonies that he got from Algerian and French patients that he treated during the Algerian war that had been traumatized by the war.
Fanon was very prophetic as he attached post independence disenfranchisement of the masses by the ruling elites as well as tribal or religious clashes.

 Franz Fanon - Unrast News / unrast-Verlag
Dabei bezieht Fanon sich zwar positiv auf marxistische Vorstellungen, vom Kapitalismus ist bei ihm allerdings kaum die Rede, sondern von „Kultur, Identität, von Herrschaft, Widerstand und Gewalt“.
Der Rassist sei ein „verdrängter Homosexueller“ und deswegen sei unter den Schwarzen diese weißen Krankheit auch nicht verbreitet.
Wolter zeigt auf, wie Fanon in Anlehnung an Hegel Gewalt als Arbeit definiert und damit ontologisiert.

 Amazon.de: Dying Colonialism: English Books: Franz Fanon   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Fanon shows how the revolution not only healed the rift between the traditional Algerian patriarch and the "modern" woman, but created a new culture with new, non-sexist, values.
For instance, the traditionalist Algerian woman, in the course of the revolution, learned to leave the home, alone, even to doff the hajib, in order to pose as a "modern" woman who could fool the French into thinking she was not a spy for the mujahidin.
Fanon also talks about how the Algerian's attitude toward modern medicine and modern technology, seemingly backward to the French, changed completely when these instances of modernity ceased to represent French colonialism, but became instruments of Algerian self-determination.

 Archive | June 18, 2001 | The left-wing big lie
Left-wing intellectual Franz Fanon, in the early twentieth century, influenced the left to incorporate, in addition to the classic Marxist idea of creating class conflict and war, the idea of race war.
Fanon saw the exploitation of race consciousness and racial differences as fertile ground for violence.
Fanon understood that conflict and war was necessary to trigger the birth pangs that would bring about Socialism.

 [No title]
BSWM is part manifesto, part analysis; it both presents Fanon's personal experience as a fl intellectual in a whitened world and elaborates the ways in which the colonizer/colonized relationship is normalized as psychology.
In addition to seeing patients, Fanon wrote about the movement for a number of publications, including Sartre's Les Temps Modernes, Presence Africaine, and the FLN newspaper el Moudjahid; some of his work from this period was collected posthumously as Toward the African Revolution (1964).
Given Fanon's importance to postcolonial studies, the obituaries marking his death were small; the two inches of type offered by The New York Times and Le Monde inadequately describe his achievements and role.

 Franz Fanon and Bessie Head
Elizabeth's nationality (or lack thereof), her statelessness, her "race," and her philosophy all modify Fanon's definition of the native intellectual, but it is in her prioritizing of the soul over nationality that she differs most.
Fanon's intellectual must develop a national consciousness before he can develop an international consciousness, whereas Elizabeth works from God down or from the universal to the particular.
According to Fanon, "native intellectuals" are men of culture and "men of culture take their stand in the field of history" (209).

 Dar Es Salaam, British Colonialism
Fanon was then, after he successfully completed the academic requirements for a degree in psychiatry, tracked to the hospital at Blida, Algeria, where he, a decorated World War II veteran, joined the National Liberation Front (F.L.N.).
Fanon would be recruited as a member of the “extended psychological warfare division” of the Tavistock Institute, becoming far more influential after his death than he was at any time in his short career.
Franz Fanon realized that “the native is an oppressed person whose permanent dream is to become the persecutor.” He recognized this as a slave’s mentality, and, as a doctor, recognized it as a malady.

 Glossary of People: Fa
After attending schools in Martinique and France, Fanon served in the French army during World War II and afterward completed his studies in medicine and psychiatry at the University of Lyon.
The publication shortly before his death of his book The Wretched of the Earth (1961) established Fanon as a prophetic figure, the author of a social gospel that urged colonised peoples to purge themselves of their degradation in a "collective catharsis" to be achieved by violence against their European oppressors.
This book traced the stages of development of culture and social development as a new nation emerges from the domination of colonialism and he warned of the dangers of a nation achieving national liberation before achieving maturity in the development of its own culture, pointing to the United States as an example.
