Sample text

Based upon his clinical experiences as a psychiatrist in Algeria during its bloody independence struggle, Fanon’s humanism was, like Sartre’s, also deeply concerned with respecting the human capacity for freedom and agency, and understood colonialism to be psychopathological in its suppression of this capacity; its denial to colonised people of their vital autonomy; its ‘butchery of what is most human in man [sic]: freedom’ ([1952] 2008: 173). For Fanon, becoming human was tied to the project of becoming a free subject, and so the revolutionary struggle to actively overcome any apparatus that suppressed this free subjectivity was seen as a necessary step for colonial populations to take in order to regain their stolen humanity.

Fromm is justified therefore in questioning the conventional geography and genealogy of humanism that halts at the borders of Europe and at the developments of the Renaissance, and describing humanism instead as a ‘global Philosophy of Man [sic] … which had one of its peaks in the Renaissance’ (1984: 43). Though it stretches back further than the Renaissance and wider than its European expression, the term ‘humanism’ is nevertheless often employed simply as a byword for the Renaissance, and this ‘peak’ in humanism’s European history is best understood against the background of the dominant thought that existed during the preceding Middle Ages.

Without a clear account of such ends, sociology also renders itself vulnerable to the demands of externally defined ends, such as those increasingly imposed upon it by market and governmental forces. In the current climate of cuts to, and increasing audit of higher education in countries such as the United Kingdom, this book suggests that reasserting the humanistic concerns embodied in disciplines like sociology may help contribute to a defence against their full assimilation into capitalist or state priorities.
