Race and Epistemologies of Ignorance
Shannon Sullivan, Nancy Tuana
SUNY Press, May 10, 2007 - Social Science - 276 pages
"Offering a wide variety of philosophical approaches to the neglected philosophical problem of ignorance, this collection builds on Charles Mills's claim that racism involves an inverted epistemology, an epistemology of ignorance. Contributors explore how different forms of ignorance linked to race are produced and sustained and what role they play in promoting racism and white privilege."--BOOK JACKET.
