HISTORY OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF RACE


Among the innovations credited to the thinkers of the early Modern period, perhaps the most infamous is the invention of the concept of race. In this course we will consider the treatments of race by prominent philosophers (Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant), and look at a variety of related discussions including the monogenesis/polygenesis debate and the rise of "scientific" racism.
