Chapter 6 elaborates on the psycho-affective complexes engendered in ‘men of culture’ – namely the advocates of negritude and Arabo-Islamism – who turned to a mythic past to counter colonialism. The chapter shows that, for Fanon, decolonization must be sought at the level of European thought; it goes on to explore the influence which he had on Abelkabir Khatibi, Abdallah Laroui and Edward Said. The aim of the chapter is to deconstruct Western epistemology by considering the notions of ‘tradition’, ‘translation’ and the ‘humanities’ and to provide a critique of neo-liberalism and cultural imperialism.

Keywords:   tradition, translation, culture, imperialism, Islam, humanism, neo-liberalism
