Doing Philosophy Personally

This chapter examines Marcel’s failure to appreciate the full magnitude of antiblack racism as a system of dehumanization. It contends that Marcel’s sociopolitical thought is an unwitting accomplice to colonialism once it is viewed from the standpoint of Frantz Fanon’s criticism of colonialist logic in The Wretched of the Earth and Enrique Dussel’s criticism of western modernity in The Underside of Modernity. In addition, it examines how Gordon’s existential phenomenological account of antiblack racism is compatible with a Marcellian reflective method.

Keywords:   underside of western modernity, Frantz Fanon, depersonalization of the colonized, Man against Mass Society, Gabriel Marcel, Enrique Dussel, Lewis R. Gordon, existential phenomenological account of antiblack racism
