A revolutionary thinker who drew upon influences from philosophy, political theory, and psychoanalysis, Fanon is best known for his fierce championing of Algerian liberation and his reflections on the psychological impact of colonialism and imperialism. Now that the philosophical value of Fanon’s work is finally being recognised, we should also ask what it can teach us about the contemporary world. In what ways can Fanon’s writings help us understand more recent political uprisings and revolutions, as well as new forms of resistance? In what ways can Fanon shed light upon a political landscape transformed by technology and twenty-first century globalization?
