AGUIRRE AGUIRRE, Carlos. Notes for a corpo-politics based on the writings by Aimé Césaire and Frantz Fanon. Universum [online]. 2019, vol.34, n.1, pp.15-38. ISSN 0718-2376.

This paper addresses the question of how corpo-politics is dealt with in the works of two Afro-Antillean thinkers: Aimé Césaire and Frantz Fanon. We contend that for both thinkers the corpo-politics is a core dimension linked to their reflections on the conflicts that took place between the colonized bodies and the epistemological schemes of modernity/coloniality. First, starting from several authors, we explore the importance of Césaire's notion of negritude, and at the same time we interrogate the cultural identities set up by coloniality on bodies. Thereafter, we conduct an inquiry about Fanons critique of ontological thought and modern rationalisms, where we point out the importance, within this very critique, of his exposition about colonized bodies and the zone of non-being. We conclude that both Césaire's negritude concept and Fanon's idea of the zone of non-being meditate an alternative perspective from which it is possible to devise another politics on post-colonial bodies.

Palabras clave : Aimé Césaire; Frantz Fanon; corpo-politics.
