Description :
Sartre's philosophical works and political activism is located against the backdrop of a Parisian intellectual life marked by struggles over the future of Marxism. Sartre's desire to contest and rethink metrocentric framings of colonialism and anticolonialism derived from his weddedness to a historicised phenomenology of existence as spatial. Critical interrogation of the complicity of postcolonial theory in the global march of metrocentric ontology affords geography and postcolonial studies a new impetus for dialogue. Before scrutinising how the colonising tendencies of postcolonial theory might best be handled, there is a need to map historical geographies of the theoretical projects and practices that have emerged in different metropolitan locations and at different times.
