Surviving Race, Ethnicity, and Nationality is the first book to explore philosophically the concepts of race, ethnicity, and nationality, and offer a systematic and unified theory emphasizing metaphysical and epistemological issues. Gracia argues for a familial, historical view of ethnicity and race in the tradition of Du Bois, and for a political view of nationality the roots of which can be traced to the French Enlightenment. Meticulous criticism of Appiah on race, Corlett on ethnicity, and Miller on nationality set the stage for the presentation of Gracia's own analytically precise discussion.. Surviving Race, Ethnicity, and Nationality is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the distinctive ways that philosophy informs and clarifies our common understanding of these complex concepts.

About the Author:

Jorge J.E. Gracia is Samuel P. Capen Chair and SUNY Distinguished Professor in the department of philosophy at SUNY Buffalo.

Review:

Clarity of concepts is not just an epistemological necessity, but it is an ethical obligation. If successful philosophy involves getting to "know ones' way around," which implies gaining greater clarity regarding some particular inchoate conceptual terrain, philosopher Gracia's Surviving Race, Ethnicity, and Nationality provides readers with an impressive, systematic, comprehensive, and insightful analysis for conceptually traversing such highly politically charged, historically dynamic, and existentially embodied concepts as race, ethnicity, and nationality. (George Yancy, professor of philosophy, Emory University)

Gracia provides in lucid fashion a discussion of various contemporary accounts of the concepts of race, ethnicity and/or nationality. I highly recommend it! (J Angelo Corlett, Professor of Philosophy & Ethics, San Diego State University)
