Philosophy of Race — Part 2

An all-to-brief introduction to the open, honest discussion some philosophers have had about the social construction of “race.”

In Philosophy of Race — Part 1, I discussed how philosophers discussed the concept of race prior to the 1960’s American Civil Rights Movement. In Part 2, I pick up the story as philosophers reacted to the legacy of that movement.
