PHL 420 Philosophy, Diversity, and Recognition

Many are disadvantaged or disvalued because of aboriginality, race, ethnicity, sex, gender, orientation, or such. Usually, problems of marginalization are addressed in terms of equality, equity, and our legal constitution. Critics argue that this framework is insufficient to address the problems. They defend a different political morality variously referred to as the politics of recognition, identity, or difference. This course is a philosophical investigation of the different conceptual frameworks concerning the problems of marginalization. Lect: 3 hrs.
