Editorial Reviews


"This is a book to relish, not because the diverse essays are in placid agreement, but because they support and provoke a sense of hope and a rethinking of concepts and social boundaries from different angles. . . This collection's contribution lies in its academic depth, its focus on the ordinary and commitments to debate the complexities of being human in relation to institutions and meanings that are racially inscribed. . . I feel that philosophers, inquiring minds and academic minds will find this collection thought provoking and useful."—Raz Yaqoob, South Bank University. Ethnic and Racial Studies, Vol. 24, No. 3, May 2001

"The essays in this volume bring careful philosophical argument to bear on matters of contemporary concern; together they provide an approach to the topic of racism and philosophy unavailable elsewhere."—Michele M. Moody-Adams, Indiana University

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Steven H Propp TOP 100 REVIEWER on December 3, 2010
Format: Paperback
In their Introduction to this 1999 book, the editors write, "The contributors to this volume attempt to identify and clarify important structures of meaning through which Western philosophy has both evaded acknowledgement of racism and has, at the same time, offered influential conceptual schemas that have helped produce the destructive racializations of contemporary society. In rethinking the implications of philosophical accounts of the social contract; the great chain of being; the idea of history; the liberal analysis of harm, of persons, and of rationality, this volume suggests that acknowledging the importance of racism can effectively inform the development of questions in all areas of philosophy."

Here are some additional quotations from the book:

"I find myself in an awkward position when I raise these questions. After all, I am a philosopher. I am also a critical race theorist. I conseqently face the risk of a performative contradiction if I take too skeptical a stand. Yet, as a philosopher committed to a conception of philosophy that is ultimately a form of radical critique, I need consider these questions with all the gravity they occasion." (Pg. 32)
"This was the concept in which the notion of race was taken up by natural philosophers and other philosophes in the modern period. How---or why---it was that the word and concept of 'race' came to be used to classify human groups is not entirely clear ... but a number of contributing factors stand out. First, tensions within Europe arose from encounters among groups of peoples who differed culturally or, more narrowly, religiously.
