Theorizing multiculturalism : a guide to the current debate

edited by Cynthia Willett

This wide-ranging anthology of classic and newly-commissioned essays brings together the major theories of multiculturalism from a multiplicity of philosophical perspectives. Although the postmodern critique of 'grand theory' prepared the way for multiculturalism, this same critique has also threatened to leave current research on race, gender, sex, ethnicity, and class without unity or direction. By challenging the impasses of the postmodern critique, this collection serves to explore the very possibility of a grounding work in multiculturalism and diversity without resorting to the foundationalism of traditional philosophy. Essays span the major positions, including Post-Hegelian Theories of Recognition, Post-Marxism, Postcolonialism and Ethnicity, Liberalism, Analytic and Continental Feminism, Pragmatism, Critical Race Theory, and Theories of Corporeality and Sexuality.It's contributors include: Nancy Fraser, Iris Marion Young, Lawrence Blum, Howard McGary, Robert Bernasconi, Lucius Outlaw, and Leonard Harris, among others. "Theorizing Multiculturalism" is ideal for students and researchers in social and political philosophy, social theory, cultural studies, American studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, and political theory.
