Does Philosophy Have a Diversity Problem?
” recently wrote an article on the problem of diversity in philosophy, and I can honestly say that I could never have anticipated how polarizing the response would be. I have received a lot of support from academic philosophers all over the world, which I truly appreciate. I have also received a lot of constructive criticisms from other academic philosophers, which I also appreciate; it is always humbling when people read your work, explain your missteps, and show you a different perspective with which you can approach the issue. There are some academic philosophers who have simply gone on the defensive and attack mode, and that will always be most unwelcome, because it does not push the conversation forward in anyway. However, I think that it is imperative that I answer to some of the comments that I have received in order to promote dialogue and move the conversation forward.”
