The Racial Discourses of Life Philosophy: Negritude, Vitalism, and Modernity (New Directions in Critical Theory)
This book brings together Donna V. Jones's impressive knowledge of nineteenth-century German hermeneutic and philosophical traditions with her critique of colonialism. It shows, in particular, the ways in which the rise of racial discourse drew upon vitalist traditions. Through an erudite and striking comparative reading of Aime Cesaire and Leopold Senghor, Jones delineates two very different trajectories for the vitalist tradition within twentieth-century black thought. -- Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley Donna V. Jones's magisterial book reveals how race discourse in interwar Europe was appropriated by anticolonialists in order to position Negritude as the regenerative counterpart to a moribund Europe. Jones also draws on her historical findings to throw critical light on the afterlife of vitalism in the thought of such contemporary theorists as Gilles Deleuze, Antonio Negri, Giorgio Agamben, and Elizabeth Grosz. Jones enriches our understanding of what she perceptively terms 'postmodern vitalism.' This is a remarkable achievement, and Racial Discourses of Life Philosophy will have a significant impact on many disciplines, including African and Caribbean studies, art history, comparative literature, French studies, history, and philosophy. -- Mark Antliff, Duke University In this remarkable study, Donna V. Jones not only examines the influence of Bergson on Senghor, Cesaire, and their disciples, but also the vital connections between life philosophies in the West and the structure of thought from which the expressive strategies of Negritude derive. -- F. Abiola Irele, Harvard University The Racial Discourses of Life Philosophy: Negritude, Vitalism, and Modernity is a superbly presented work of seminal scholarship, making it an extraordinary contribution to academic library philosophy and literary analysis collections. Midwest Book Review 5/1/2010 This careful study outlines the problems of an uncritical return to Bergson that so many contemporary critics, especially those influenced by Gilles Deleuze, participate in. Jones's work shores up serious misgivings about the racial implication of e'lan vital in Bergson and contemporary practices of thought that she classifies as New Bergsonisms. -- Jose Esteban Munoz Women and Performance Vol 21, No2, 2011 rigorous textual work and provocative intervention in the history of ideas, emerges as an absolutely crucial book...fundamentally changes our understanding of the Negritude movement. Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy Vol 19, No 2, 2011
