New In-Person Philosophy Course, Winter 2022: PHIL 599.3. "C. Mills on Race and Racism."
Charles Mills (1951-2021) was once described by fellow Philosopher Christopher Lebron as "our Black Socrates." Mills was on the forefront of placing race, class, and gender into mainstream philosophical thought. Perhaps best-known for his scathing critique of the whiteness of political theory, Mills also made important contributions in metaphysics and epistemology. This class will be a deep dive into his views on race, racism, white ignorance, and the prospects for a radical revisioning of the liberal tradition.
Offered Tue/Thu 2:00-3:15PM, (in-person)
