One of the greatest burdens to bear is that of an unfavourable history. Its weight has a great deal of undertones that turn the existence of the persons involved into a psychologically distorted one. On this question of the burden of history, a collective approach has more far reaching psychological consequences for its bearers than that with an individualistic dimension. The former captures the reality of the Antillean people of Guadeloupe and Martinique, two overseas Departments of France. Our objective in this paper therefore is to painstakingly examine the Antillean’s history, existence and space with a view to rationalizing the reactionary and innovative mentality amongst the Antillean people who seem to be racing against time in the search for their true identity, qualities and future projections.
