Black Means??? An Interdisciplinary Analysis of Martin Heidegger's Theory on Language [Presentation]

Description:

This presentation discusses research on the philosophical connotations of words. Philosophy of language allows us to examine how language has been used to shape, establish and solidify cultures. As we use the tools offered us by philosophers who have studied language, we will be able to explore the language that accompanied the creation of racial categories and the role that it has played in American society.
