Philosophy professors who will be teaching courses like “Contemporary Moral Problems” this fall may be interested in adding a unit on race, racism, protests, and related issues that have been at the forefront of the public’s attention recently.
What set of readings and other materials would you recommend they assign?
Keep in mind:
- the materials should be appropriate for a lower level course populated by many students who have never taken philosophy before
- the unit may be just two to three weeks long
- the materials may include other things besides readings
- what we’re looking for is a set of readings or materials assigned in a certain order that work well together pedagogically.
