How can the wretched of the earth become a basis of a new politics? Does Frantz Fanon’s dialectic of organization, only implicit in his writings, and certainly not simply reducible to any particular organization or to direct action, have anything to offer our period of revolts and rebellions? Reflecting on Fanon’s revolutionary commitment and its theoretical articulation in The Wretched of the Earth, this essay reflects on what he calls a new humanism as a philosophical-organizational and practical problematic.
