In this episode we interview Devin Zane Shaw. Shaw is the author of three books, including Philosophy of Antifascism, and Egalitarian Moments: From Descartes to Rancière, and a recent pamphlet on solidarity movements and Indigenous struggles, The Politics of the Blockade. He is co-editor, with LaRose Parris and Storm Heter, of the Living Existentialism series published by Rowman and Littlefield. He teaches philosophy at Douglas College in British Columbia.
Shaw talks to us about several aspects of his book the Philosophy of Antifascism, including relationships between egalitarianism, violence and community defense. We also talk about Shaw’s use of settler colonialism as a foundational concept for North American fascistic movements. Finally we ask questions for militant antifascists as we enter the Biden-Harris regime and the aftermath of January 6th.
