postcolonial history when many anticolonial utopias have withered into a morass of exhaustion corruption and authoritarianism David Scott argues the need to reconceptualize the past in order to reimagine a usable future He describes how prior to independence anticolonialists narrated the transition from colonialism to postcolonialism as romance as a story of overcoming and vindication of salvation and redemption Scott contends that postcolonial scholarship assumes the same trajectory and that this imposes conceptual l. 39 stars I enjoyed it and found it stimulating and I recommend it overall It seems to offer a novel reading of CLR James s The Black Jacobins However something about Scott s broader historiographical intervention felt lackingA few of the critical scholarly reviews I ve read take other issues with the book the centering of Toussaint Louverture in tragedy as a great man arising from history rather than taking into account collective history of the Haitian peoplerevolutionaries the sidelining of other important figures in the revolution and of the Cuban Revolution and the focus on present and historical moments as homogenous we are in the postcolonial contemporary problem space but none seem to take direct hits at the central thesis which is the part that feels underwhelming to me My reading of Scott s argument is After Bandung we moderns setting aside the aforementioned definitional problems there face not the Romantic vindicationism of anticolonial revolution but tragic postcolonial conditions in which our choice for possible futures is not between colonialism and some alternative future or a return to before colonialism but between choices within modernity ie rendering us conscripts of modernity Scott calls on postmodern intellectuals not to exercise anticolonial attitudes but rather the tragic sensibility inherent in recognizing the ambiguity and complexity of the postcolonial conditions that shape our choices in the first place Our rational faculties he argues should employ compassion and humility recognizing that enlightened principles are always subject to chance and contingency that which is beyond human controlThis doesn t seem very interesting to me not because I disagree but because it s all been said before right The book itself implicitly admits this the discussion of tragedy and moralpolitical theory largely draws on prior scholarship and merely drops it into the postcolonial setting the seamlessness of that drop in is also worth interrogating I m also unclear what exactly it means to recognize the limits of one s rationality how does that help postmodern intellectuals negotiate their so called tragic choices other than a vague exercise of compassion and open mindedness to contingencychanceideas not one s own As a reading of The Black Jacobins the book is great But as a broader intervention I fail to see the novelty Or am I misreading somethingAlso three other things 1 Isn t it interesting perhaps to think about how we can reshape these conditions in the first place to combat modernity s positive power structures with our own restructuring In that sense Scott s call to the tragic seems awfully passive 2 Doesn t Foucault s discussion of heterotopias in The Order of Things and Of Other Spaces grapple with the ambiguitycomplexity of modern structures thereby undermining the FoucaultHabermas dynamic which forms a central impasse that Scott attempts to answer or move past 3 Scott says uite a lot about decentering Eurocentric scholarship but almost all of his references are
