Mbembe is often described as an inheritor of Frantz Fanon and Michel Foucault: his political deconstruction of the "postcolony" is a decolonializing force to be reckoned with. I remember reading the titular essay of this work on Tumblr in, like, 2011 (?), and find it now similarly as I did then: Mbembe is an ocean of political insight and rage, crashing.

Published: Hill and Wang - October 12th, 2010

Written after the death of Barthes' beloved mother, Camera Lucida is more than a treatise on photography. It's an analysis steeped in grief—precise, intimate, haunting. Barthes' language pulses with critical acuity and tenderness as he considers the subject, death, and that which "pricks" us. This book not only changed how I read—it redefined the way I see.

Derrida lived a long time, longer than most of his friends. But what does it mean to outlive, and to mourn? Derrida processes grief like the profound philosopher he was famous for being—where nothing is processed, and everything is still processing. Maybe we can find some comfort in that processing.
