Inhaltsangabe: This book explores the experiences and philosophical work product of mixed race philosophers, as well as possible links between the two. There are monographs by philosophers that address mixed-race identity, and there are anthologies in the social sciences on mixed-race identity, but this is the first anthology on the philosophy of mixed-race, and the first such anthology that is explicitly and deliberately by mixed-race philosophers.
Rezension: Few North American philosophers and an even smaller proportion of North Americans in general have thought deeply about the way society labels some people as 'mixed race.' This volume includes some of the seminal essays that established the issue as a genuinely philosophical topic and is supplemented by new essays where the contributors draw on their personal experience to illuminate it further. Tina Botts' collection brings the topic fully alive and makes it impossible to ignore. -- Robert Bernasconi, Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Philosophy and African American Studies, Pennsylvania State University This is an exciting and very important new anthology. The essays gathered here are rigorous and provocative efforts to philosophize about and from mixed-race experience. Bringing together a variety of outstanding thinkers, this collection offers a diversity of approaches to a woefully under-explored theme. It is a timely and sophisticated intervention into a challenging set of questions and issues. Those interested in issues of race and racism broadly, but especially those interested in mixed-race identities and discourses, will find this text indispensable. -- Michael Monahan, Marquette University Tempted (if light enough) to pass as white, pressured (if their ancestry is known) to identify as black or brown or red, rejected (all too often) as neither, while denied (perversely) the right to claim both or all or no racial identities, mixed race people find themselves in multiple binds that destabilize conventional understandings of the relation between the individual and society. Tina Botts's path-breaking collection gives eleven mixed race philosophers the chance to speak their minds-and they do just that, with painful and illuminating candor, humor, a defiant determination not to have others tell them who and what they are, and an insistence that their distinct perspective on reality raises deep meta-philosophical questions about the protocols of the discipline. This book should be welcomed not only by the growing number of Americans who claim mixed race identity, but by anyone too smugly certain about their own supposedly contrasting "unmixed" racial identity (which means almost everyone). -- Charles Mills, John Evans Professor of Moral and Intellectual Philosophy, Northwestern University This collection of profoundly rich original essays by prominent and emerging philosophers weaves together their distinctive voices to expand the boundaries of ontology, political theory, and critical race philosophy. Anyone puzzled or frustrated by official and social uses of racial categories needs to read and engage this volume. -- Anita L. Allen, University of Pennsylvania This important collection is courageous, challenging, and long overdue. Professor Fernandes Botts has assembled a stellar list of contributors, and has worked with them to produce that rarity in professional philosophy: a set of reflections that is both philosophically ambitious and deeply personal. The mixed race theory it begins to enact is a valuable resource for philosophical race theorists. And the way it enacts this theory - by embracing rather than evading the living messiness of the issues in play - is an excellent model for philosophers in any area. -- Paul C. Taylor, Pennsylvania State University Philosophy and the Mixed Race Experience is the leading philosophical text on the philosophy of mixed race. Sensitive to the relations between the social position and personal experiences of thinkers and the insights they can bring to philosophy, this collection highlights the perspectives of mixed race philosophers. In this volume, Tina Botts and contributors show how mixed race experiences are important not only for the philosophy of race and moral and political philosophy, but for the practice of philosophy overall. -- Elizabeth Anderson, John Dewey Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, University of Michigan Ann Arbor
