9780761866800: Postmodern Racial Dialectics: Philosophy Beyond the Pale

Postmodern Racial Dialectics is a collection of ten essays on African American philosophy.
Addressing issues as disparate as why there are no graduate programs in philosophy at the more than one hundred traditionally black colleges and universities in the U.S.—to conceptions of Black utopianism—to the nature of postmodern revolutions, these essays are beyond the bounds of traditional racial discourse. The essays are dialectical in the sense that they are conversations between personal histories, between ideologies, and between changing ways that the races talk to one another. The book is postmodern in that it is beyond modernity’s linear logic. Postmodern Racial Dialectics is also a political entreaty for African Americans to be wary of conventional ways of thinking, and to begin thinking transgressively beyond narrowly prescribed conceptions from both sides of the color line.

About the Author:

Richard A. Jones taught philosophy at Howard University in Washington, D.C. He served as Co-Coordinator of the Radical Philosophy Association and was an associate editor of the Radical Philosophy Review. Jones is also the author of The Black Book: Wittgenstein and Race.

Review:

An illuminating examination of the global race and class struggle, Postmodern Racial Dialectics pinpoints fundamental truths about systemic injustices that defines modern society. Recognizing the tensions in the Black American experience between racial oppression and economic privilege, Jones explores philosophical theories, artistic visions, and political ideologies that could lead to the realization of equality and liberation of the human spirit. Postmodern Racial Dialectics offers a unique approach to understanding structural racism and a wealth of revolutionary ideas on ‘reclaiming human destiny.’ (Rosanna Marie Neil, Director, Sustainable World Initiative)

Postmodern Racial Dialectics: Philosophy Beyond the Pale is a profound meditation on the dialectics of the Black experience in America by a self-consciously Black professional philosopher. Richard Jones has reached that point in his life where he can reflect on his experience with profit, and we too as readers cannot but be stimulated and enlightened by the range and depth of this extraordinary collection of essays. This book will undoubtedly generate a great deal of discussion in the philosophical community. (Patrick Gooden, Chair, Philosophy Department, Howard University)
