Going beyond merely confirmingMore Through examining Douglasss and Fanons concrete experiences of oppression, Cynthia R. Nielsen demonstrates the empirical validity of Foucaults theoretical analyses concerning power, resistance, and subject-formation.

Going beyond merely confirming Foucaults insights, Douglass and Fanon expand, strengthen, and offer correctives to the emancipatory dimensions of Foucaults project. Unlike Foucault, Douglass and Fanon were not hesitant to make transhistorical judgments condemning slavery and colonization. Foucaults reticence here signals a weakness in his account of human being. This weakness sets him at cross-purposes not only with Scotus, but also with Douglass and Fanon.

Scotuss anthropology provides a basis for transhistorical moral critique- thus he is a valuable dialogue partner for those concerned about social justice and human flourishing.
