Race and the enlightenment : a reader

edited by Emmanuel Chukwudi Eze

This book gathers into one volume the most provocative philosophical writing on race produced by the luminaries of the European Enlightenment. There is no anthology that has so focused itself on exploring through primary texts the alliance between philosophy, anthropology and race. It is an attempt to show, through primary texts on matters of race, the 'dark' sides of the Enlightenment philosophy. This book is an indispensable tool for students and researchers interested in exploring the race-inflected nature of eighteenth-century philosophy and science on the one hand, and the systematics relations between philosophy and anthropology and race, on the other.
