PHI 220 - Philosophy of Identity: Self, Gender and Race (1)

This course is an examination of the philosophical notions of identity related to the notions of self, gender and race. After offering a background and framework of philosophical thought on self-identity, one will discern how this is played out in modern notions of gender and race. This philosophical endeavor will lead to an investigation of the personal, social and political implications of considering oneself to be of a certain gender and of a given race. It is where philosophical speculations land themselves firmly into the significant issues of today.
