Kant and the Concept of Race : Late Eighteenth-Century Writings
by Jon M. Mikkelsen and Jon M. Mikkelsen




Overview -
Kant and the Concept of Race features translations of four texts by Immanuel Kant frequently designated his Racenschriften (race essays), in which he develops and defends an early theory of race. Also included are translations of essays by four of Kant's contemporaries--E. A. W.
