Example text

Angelo Corlett, who in 2001 published an article that, together with the piece he published in the volume edited by Gracia and De Greiff, became the basis for his book Race, Racism, and Reparations (2003). In this monograph, Corlett raised traditional questions concerning race, but, unlike most other philosophers, he couched the answers in terms of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. Apart from these, other signs of a paradigm shift in the discussion of race in the United States were also available during this time.

Moreover, he claims that proponents of this position do not take into account another important distinction, between history and philosophy, which is pertinent because Gracia’s account of Hispanic/Latino identity is philosophical, not historical. Stavans brings up another objection to Gracia’s position, one that is unique among Gracia’s critics represented in this volume. According to him, Gracia does not give language the place it deserves in an account of identity and particularly Hispanic/Latino identity.

A lean and realistic ontology has led him to oppose Appiah’s move from race and ethnicity to racial and ethnic identities. Likewise, from García’s perspective, Gracia’s acceptance of the notion of a Hispanic/Latino identity makes no sense insofar as talking about what a person is should be sufficient for purposes of dealing effectively with racial discrimination and similar phenomena. In his view, Gracia does not need to have recourse to the notion of an ethnic identity, which García finds problematic and dubious.
