By definitively establishing that racism has broad implications for how the entire field of philosophy is practiced-and by whom-this powerful and convincing book puts all members of the discipline on notice that racism concerns them. It simultaneously demonstrates to race theorists the significance of philosophy for their work.A distinguished cast of authors takes a stand on the importance of race, focusing on the insights that analyses of race and racism can make to philosophy-not just to ethics and political philosophy but also to the more abstract debates of metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and epistemology. Contemporary philosophy, the authors argue, continues to evade racism and, as a result, often helps to promote it. At the same time, anti-racist theorists in many disciplines regularly draw on crucial notions of objectivity, rationality, agency, individualism, and truth without adequate knowledge of philosophical analyses of these very concepts. Racism and Philosophy demonstrates the impossibility of talking thoughtfully about race without recourse to philosophy. Written to engage readers with a wide variety of interests, this is an essential book for all theorists of race and for all philosophers.

"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 *
