Martin Heidegger’s insight that a human being projects itself towards the future and that human identity is constituted by this self-selected projection is widely acknowledged. In contrast, Frantz Fanon’s philosophical work was aimed at analysing the ways in which collective identities undermine the project of authentic selfhood. This class will explore the relationship between the values associated with authenticity and identity by examining both the theory and the biography of two of the twentieth century’s most controversial philosophers.
