Van Norden Interview

Bryan Van Norden is interviewed about his new book Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto by Dan Kaufman. Some of the topics:

  • Just how Euro-centric are American philosophy departments, anyway?
  • Is racism baked into Western philosophy?
  • A brief account of Western dalliances with Eastern thought
  • Why new movements in philosophy must kill their ancestors
  • Why do philosophy departments stay white? Subtle self-selection, Bryan says
  • Is philistinism killing philosophy as a discipline?
