The Modern Critical Theory Lecture Series 2020
Critical race theory CRT is an academic movement made up of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race , and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice. Critics of CRT say that it relies on social constructionism , elevates storytelling over evidence and reason, rejects the concepts of truth and merit, and opposes liberalism. Roy L. Brooks defines CRT in as: .
This historical concept of race has faced substantial scientific and philosophical challenge, with some important thinkers denying both the logical coherence of the concept and the very existence of races. Others defend the concept of race, albeit with substantial changes to the foundations of racial identity, which they depict as either socially constructed or, if biologically grounded, neither discrete nor essentialist, as the historical concept would have it. Both in the past and today, determining the boundaries of discrete races has proven to be most vexing and has led to great variations in the number of human races believed to be in existence. Thus, some thinkers categorized humans into only four distinct races typically white or Caucasian, Black or African, yellow or Asian, and red or Native American , and downplayed any biological or phenotypical distinctions within racial groups such as those between Scandinavians and Spaniards within the white or Caucasian race. The ambiguities and confusion associated with determining the boundaries of racial categories have provoked a widespread scholarly consensus that discrete or essentialist races are socially constructed, not biologically real.
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.
ГЛАВА 80 Хейл, крепко сжимая шею Сьюзан, крикнул в темноту: - Коммандер, твоя подружка у меня в руках. Я требую выпустить меня отсюда. В ответ - тишина. Его руки крепче сжали ее шею. - Я сейчас ее убью.
Не смей прикасаться! - Стратмор рванулся к терминалу и отдернул ее руку. Обескураженная, Сьюзан подалась. Она смотрела на коммандера и второй раз за этот день не могла его узнать.
