Philosophy and the Mixed Race Experience is a collection of essays by philosophers about the mixed race experience. Each essay is meant to represent one of three possible things: (1) what the philosopher sees as the philosopher's best work, (2) evidence of the possible impact of the philosopher's mixed race experience on the philosopher's work, or (3) the philosopher's philosophical take on the mixed race experience. The book has two primary goals: (1) to collect together for the first time the work of professional, academic philosophers who have had the mixed race experience, and (2) to bring these essays together for the purpose of adding to the conversation on the question of the degree to which factical identity and philosophical work may be related. The book also examines the possible relationship between the mixed race experience and certain philosophical positions.
Tina Fernandes Botts is visiting assistant professor of philosophy at Oberlin College and postdoctoral fellow in the Consortium for Faculty Diversity in Liberal Arts Colleges.

Editorial Reviews

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.
