Real knowing always involves a political dimension Linda Martin Alcoff suggests But this does not mean we need to give up realism or the possibility of truth Recent work in continental philosophy insists on the influence that power and desire exert on knowing whereas contemporary analytic philosophy largely ignores these political concerns in its accounts of justification and truth Alcoff engages these traditionally conflicting approaches in a constructive dialogue effectively spanning the analytic continental divide In provocative readings of major figures in the continental tradition Alcoff shows that the work of Hans Georg Gadamer and Michel Foucault can help rectify key problems in coherence epistemology such as the link between coherence and truth She also argues that discussions about knowledge among continental philosophers can benefit from the work of analytic philosophers Donald Davidson and Hilary Putnam on meaning and ontology Alcoff makes a compelling case for the need to address truth as a metaphysical issue in contrast to minimalist tendencies in Anglo American philosophy and deconstructionism on the continent Her work persuasively argues for coherentist epistemology as a more realistic reconfiguration of the ontology of truth, This anthology provides the definitive theoretical sources of contemporary thinking about identity including explorations of race class gender and nationality br br Explores the long and rich tradition of philosophical analysis and debate over the genesis contours and political effects of identity categories br br Provides the definitive theoretical sources and contemporary debates by leading theorists such as selections from Hegel Marx Freud DuBois Beauvoir Lukacs Fanon Hall Guha Hobsbawm Wittig Butler Halperin R Robertson Said and LaClau br br Combines general and specific analyses of particular identity categories race ethnicity gender sexuality class nationality br br Allows for a comparative study of identities through multiple theoretical frameworks, Ask most people to imagine a philosopher and they probably think of someone like Socrates absent minded perhaps but with a sharp intellect and a thirst for the truth A woman juggling car pools and housework is not the first image that springs to mind but women have taken huge steps in the philosophy profession over the past years Still to this day well established women philosophers continue to face sexism from colleagues and students Singing in the Fire is a unique groundbreaking collection of autobiographical essays by leading women in philosophy It mines the experience of the generation that witnessed and helped create the remarkable advances now evident for women in the field These women are leaders and innovators looking back on how they have been treated how they might have done things differently and how we might make progress in future generations, White identity is in ferment White European Americans living in the United States will soon share an unprecedented experience of slipping below of the population The impending demographic shifts are already felt in most urban centers and the effect is a national backlash of hyper mobilized political and sometimes violent activism with a stated aim that is simultaneously vague and deadly clear to take our country back Meanwhile the spectre of minority status draws closer and the material advantages of being born white are eroding br br This is the political and cultural reality tackled by Linda MartIn Alcoff in The Future of Whiteness She argues that whiteness is here to stay at least for a while but that half of whites have given up on ideas of white supremacy and the shared public material culture is more integrated than ever More and more whites are becoming aware of how they appear to non whites both at home and abroad and this is having profound effects on white identity in North America The young generation of whites today as well as all those who follow will have never known a country in which they could take white identity as the unchallenged default that dominates the political economic and cultural leadership Change is on the horizon and the most important battleground is among white people themselves br br The Future of Whiteness makes no predictions but astutely analyzes the present reaction and evaluates the current signs of turmoil Beautifully written and cogently argued the book looks set to spark debate in the field and to illuminate an important area of racial politics
