Overview

THINKING ABOUT RACE offers your students a concise, provocative introduction to the often overlooked, yet ever-salient body of philosophical thought regarding the nature and impact of race on our lives. Not only does the book seek to address the essence of race and ethnicity as philosophical concepts, the book also focuses extensively on the social realities and implications of race as they bear on our outlooks in the realms of public policy, sexuality, and social class--just to name a few.
