This essay surveys key areas in the extant of Wynter’s and underscores how particular thinkers have, either in part or to a large extent, challenged what she describes as the over-representation of Man. The research traces the ways in which black subjects negotiate biocentric racial scripts in relation to their own inventions of blackness and uncovers the ways in which Wynter’s insights on sociogeny help clarify the process through which blackness—as we know it—becomes a reality.
