Abstract:Frantz Fanon, born in 1925 in Fort-de-France (Martinique), studied medicine in France, specialised in psychiatry, was in the French army during World War II, went to Algeria where he worked in the hospital at Blida until he became a member of the F.L.N. In 1960 he became ambassador of the Algerian Republic in Accra. He died in Washington in 1961. The theory of the African revolution found a most powerful inspiration in Fanon's writings: Peau noire, masques blancs (1952), L'An V de la révolution algérienne (1959), Les Damnés de la terre (1961). From these works Fanon's intellectual development is traced and his contribution to theory is analysed. Notes.
