FLIKSCHUH, K. Y.,
Kant and Colonialism. Historical and Critical Perspectives.
Oxford University Press, 2014. 268p. Hardback. The present collection provides evidence of the complexity, diversity and evolving nature of Kant's thinking. He tackles the problems of race and colonialism at various stages of his philosophical career. Each stage evinces a slightly different hue to his thinking... This lively collection seeks to discover to what extent these wrongs can be mitigated and possibly made right, largely from within a Kantian perspective. Through careful analysis of Kant's writings, the authors seek to demonstrate the extent to which Kant shared the mindset of the ascendant European colonizers and to what extent he is critical of it.
