Frederick Douglass: A Critical Reader
Bill Lawson, Frank Kirkland
Wiley, Jan 26, 1999 - History - 408 pages
In this powerful volume, 15 leading American philosophers examine and critically reassess Douglass's significance for contemporary social and political thought.
Philosophically, Douglass's work sought to establish better ways of thinking, especially in the light of his convictions about our humanity and democratic legitimacy - convictions that were culturally and historically shaped by his experience of, and struggle against, the institution of American slavery.
Contributors include Bernard R. Boxill, Angela Y. Davis, Lewis R. Gordon, Leonard Harris, Tommy L. Lott, Howard McGary, and John P. Pittman.
