A great psychiatrist of the post WW2 era. Frantz Fanon was perhaps the most influential decolonialist philosopher of the 20th century. A highly trained psychiatrist, Fanon was also a revolutionary soldier fighting the Nazis in WW2. He doubled his efforts towards the Algerian revolutionaries fighting French barbarity in the post war period.
Fanon however will always be best known for his papers on existential deconstructionism, essentialized notions of racism and his perspectives of a black man in the west.
Frantz Fanon was a renowned philosopher, soldier and revolutionary. Despite dying at the tender age of 36, Fanon has left enough decolonialist articles to last a critically thinking student a lifetime to ponder.
