Thomas Powers of the UMD political science department will present Identity
Crisis: Anti-Discrimination and the Liberal Tradition as part of
the spring semester Philosophy Colloquium at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, January
30 in 235 ABAH. His premise is that the standard interpretation views
anti discrimination policy as being a culmination of the liberal tradition
but it is actually a radicalization of the liberal tradition and, in important
ways, also a break with the liberal tradition. He argues this is visible
in the new moral logic of the fight against discrimination as well as
in the group politics of the new effort and studying Americas
civil rights revolution can serve to remind us that political science
should be the center of the social sciences and that political philosophy
is first philosophy. For information contact email@example.com.
