The latest book in my book series, Palgrave Philosophy Today, has just been published: Philosophy of Race, by Naomi Zack:
This is the 11th book in the series, all excellent books by outstanding philosophers: Helen Beebee; Lilian O’Brien; Simon Kirchin; Joel Walmsley; Anthony Booth; Mathias Risse; Shaun Gallagher; Duncan Pritchard; Chad Meister; Don Ross.
Tomorrow I’ll be a keynote speaker at this very exciting conference on ‘Autonomy and Art’ organized by Niamh NicGhabhann at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick.
The title of my talk is slightly cryptic and counter-intuitive: “Is Autonomy the Ricotta Cheese of Modern Society?”.
One should not rejoice for the death of a fellow human being, but I will make an exception in this case. In the 1990s I went to Guatemala to interview survivors of the genocide orchestrated by this man, Efrain Rios Montt. I published some of my my findings in Chapter 12 of my book ‘Social Injustice: Essays in Political Philosophy’ (Palgrave 2012). I don’t think there is a way to express the opposite of RIP, but that’s what I’m thinking.
