For a couple of different recent takes, you can look at: - Paul Taylor. Bare Ontology and Social Death. Philosophical Papers. Volume 42, Issue 3, 2013. - David Miguel Gray. Racial Norms: A Reinterpretation of Du Bois’ “The Conservation of Races”. The Southern Journal of Philosophy. Volume 51, Issue 4, 2013. - Chike Jeffers. The Cultural Theory of Race: Yet Another Look at Du Bois’s “The Conservation of Races”. Ethics. Volume 123, Issue 3, 2013. W.E.B. Du Bois’ work on race theory has shaped and informed several socio-historical theories of race. For some good examples of different kinds of work being done from this approach, one could look at the following book length treatments: - Lucious Outlaw - On Race and Philosophy, - Linda Alcoff - Visible Identities: Race Gender and the Self - Charles Mills - Blackness Visible: Essays on Philosophy of Race ---- Wi-Phi @ YouTube: http://bit.ly/1PX0hLu Wi-Phi @ Khan Academy: http://bit.ly/1nQJcF7 Twitter: https://twitter.com/wirelessphi Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1XC2tx3 Instagram: @wiphiofficial ---- Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/TCcM/
