The 15 original essays in Race and Racism in Continental Philosophy explore the resources that continental philosophy brings to debates about contemporary race theory and investigate the racism of some of Europe's most important thinkers. Attention is devoted to the influence of the work of W. E. B. Du Bois, Jean-Paul Sartre, Richard Wright, and Frantz Fanon. Questions about race in European philosophy-especially in the work of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Levi-Strauss, and Arendt-are also considered. This volume provides an indispensable critical introduction to new perspectives on thinking about race and racism.
