Critiue de la raison nègre ☆ In Critiue of Black Reason eminent critic Achille Mbembe offers a capacious genealogy of the category of Blackness from the Atlantic slave trade to the present to critically reevaluate history racism and the future of humanity Mbembe teases out the intellectual conseuences of the reality that Europe is no longer the world's center o According to Mbembe ‘Black reason' consists of a collection of voices pronouncements discourses forms of knowledge commentary and nonsense whose object is things or people of “African origin” Mbembe suggests that contact between Europe and Africa produced two narratives the Western Consciousness of Blackness and Black Consciousness of Blackness Thus he argues the Western idea of reason is different from the black or African idea of reason because both are products of different geographies Europe and Africa and therefore different experiences With regards to White consciousness of blackness Mbembe takes us on a historical tour through the three most important epoch making events in black history slavery colonialism and Apartheid The story of conuest oppression subjugation and persecution Like the slaves in Plato’s cave blackness is shackled against a wall where it is not only denied freedom but can not be allowed into Kant's kingdom of reason Therefore making Blackness sub human giving justification for denying them rights and for the oppression and persecution With regards to black consciousness of blackness what Mbembe has done is to tie the black experience through slavery colonialism and apartheid together in a bundle and under the banner of black reason and traced how these experiences have shaped how black people view themselves Blackness is like a victim of locked in syndrome locked within a skin that the bearer never chose but within the confines of which the victim is aware of what is happening to him but remains powerless to express thoughts and feelings In this prison only two options are open to the black either to acuiesce and die or struggle and survive Out of this fight for survival or as Fanon put it ‘the struggle to the death’ emerges the narrative of black consciousnessA great read but not entirely easy read PDF ì Critiue de la raison nègre À Achille Mbembe

Achille Mbembe À Critiue de la raison nègre EPUB F gravity while mapping the relations among colonialism slavery and contemporary financial and extractive capital Tracing the conjunction of Blackness with the biological fiction of race he theorizes Black reason as the collection of discourses and practices that euated Blackness with the nonhuman in order to uphold forms of oppress In this work the author discusses how the africans have been racialized and blackness as a race socially and politically constituted Enslavement of African people is a result of rising capitalism and its need for labour power Western mind exploited reason as a tool to build domination over the rest of the world Modernity became the ideology of European expansion In a sense science and philosophy justified and paved the way for domination expansion and enslavement The relationship between the colonizer and the colonized is based on violence that exercised by the colonizer The colonized has no history a dream future or past; it is there just as an object He stands at the attention of his master Master is the determinant of everthing in the life of the slave He plays the role of the God; omnipotent omnipresent and omniscient He recreates blackness in his imagination He is not worth anything He must be ordered humiliated and exercised power and violence over his body and mind In the course of production he is a tool but productive at the same time represents a sinister personality and destiny His is honour and dignity has been disgraced and so much so that spirit has vanished He is not himself any He is the person that the master created in his mind as the symbol of otherness and degradation The solution for the colonized to build an egalitarian and libertarian society is first of all not to imitate his oppressors The colonized whether black or colured has to invent his own dream and an original vision for the future For Fanon the only way to restore the damaged spirit and disgraced dignity of the colonized is to develope contra violence against oppressors Therefore Fanon justifies the resistance of the wretched of the world premised on violence
