The Retrieval of Liberalism

University of Washington, “The Daily,” blog, 5.18.18

Of the humanities, philosophy is one of the whitest. In the United States, blacks make up just 1 percent of the professional philosophical population, according to Charles Mills, distinguished professor of philosophy at The Graduate Center, CUNY. He said this field has been dominated by “busts of dead guys going through the ages” from Aristotle and Plato to Immanuel Kant and John Locke. This overwhelming “whiteness” has been seeping into philosophy’s theories for generations.
