Summary
Caribbean critique seeks to define and analyze the distinctive contribution pf francophone Caribbean thinkers to perimetric Critical theory. The book argues that their singular project has been to forge a brand of critique that, while borrowing from North Atlantic predecessors such as Rousseau, Hegel, Marx, and Sartre, was from the start indelibly marked by the Middle Passage, slavery and colonialism. Chapters and sections address figures such as Toussaint Louverture, Baron de Vastey, Victor Schoelcher, Aimé Cesaire, René Ménil, Frantz Fanon, Maryse Condé, and Édouard Glissant, while an extensive theoretical introduction defines the essential parameters of Caribbean critique. -- Publisher's description
