Sample text

On the one hand, the American tradition initiated by African American philosophers in the nineteenth century, and, on the other, the Latin American tradition begun by Latin American philosophers in the sixteenth. They meet, first, in the philosophy of Hispanics/Latinos in the United States and subsequently in the philosophy of African Americans and Anglo-Americans in the United States and in the philosophy of Latin Americans in Latin America. In closing I wish to thank my mentor Jorge Gracia, the authors of the contributing chapters, the journal editors and various press editors who have given permission to include previously published materials in the volume, Susan Smith for making some valuable suggestions for the introduction, and two very sharp and knowledgeable anonymous reviewers.

F. Strawson’s language, “revisionary” rather than “descriptive,” but he disputes Gracia’s views of race and ethnicity. Appiah’s own view on race and ethnicity is that they are not realities. Both science and history show that these are not facts in the world and thus he argues for their elimination and replacement with the notions of racial and ethnic identities. This leads him to question Gracia’s conceptions of both race and ethnicity. His strategy is to show that both conceptions are inadequate in that they would require the addition of certain conditions for them to do what Gracia wants them to do, but when those conditions are added, race and ethnicity cease to be what Gracia first thought they were.

In the first chapter, Gracia turns to the main arguments—political, moral, factual, epistemic, and pragmatic—that have been voiced in favor of doing away with the terminology and concepts of race, ethnicity, and nationality. He responds to these challenges by arguing that there are strong reasons in favor of keeping their terminology and concepts. However, their effective “survival” is contingent on the proper understanding of each of them and of their relations. Indeed, the very arguments that militate against their “conservation,” to use Du Bois’s term, arise from repeated confusions about them, hence the need for clarification.
