Racism and Philosophy by Susan E. Babbitt
Book DescriptionBy 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.

Jose Marti, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, and Global Development Ethics, Hardback (September 2014)
This book argues that the overlooked ideas of Jose Marti and Ernesto 'Che' Guevara explain recent politics in Latin America and the Caribbean but also, even more significantly, offer a defensible alternative direction for global development ethics.
Impossible Dreams, Paperback (February 1996)» View all books by Susan E. Babbitt
For people in systematically unjust societies, self-respect and human dignity may prove to be impossible dreams. Exploring the implications of that view, this book argues that individual and social rationality may require the transformation rather than the realization of deep-seated aims.
