Abstract

Attributing new dimensions to existing definitions paves the growth of every field of study. A comparative reading of the novels Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison and Blindness by Jose Saramago is conducted with an aim to equate the disabled individual to the notion of Superman as suggested by Nietzsche. The various dimensions of disability are analyzed under the concepts of Foucault and Althusser to identify whether a disabled superman can be evolved to save the world from its malice.
