SSU professor’s newest book hints at race concepts as an illusion

By:
November 30, 2012

Joshua Glasgow's most recent book promotes the idea of concepts about race being an illusion.

At least we would be better off thinking that way about it, he writes.

Glasgow, a philosophy lecturer at SSU, is about to dip into equally heady waters with the launch of a new Center for Ethics, Law and Society designed to aid the community and campus in tackling the emerging and long-standing moral, legal and political issues of the times.

From discrimination and income inequality to emerging revolutionary technologies, warfare, privacy, and biotech, the center has been created to be a leading resource in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“It is part of the responsibility of a university to lead the community in thinking about such issues,” Glasgow says. 

The new center's three-part mission is to engage with the community, foster student learning and promote faculty scholarship as a way of extending the philosophy department's role throughout the campus and community. These objectives will be served by events catering to all three constituencies, including an inaugural lecture and other talks.

It will also host Bay Area research groups and provide SSU students with career enhancement and intellectual growth opportunities.  

Glasgow says future plans include a named lecture series, a named scholarship competition for students focused on pre-law and applied ethics, and a variety of workshops and conferences revolving around specific issues of ethics, justice, and the law.

  Glasgow regularly teaches courses and conducts research on the philosophy of law, ethics, political philosophy, and race at SSU.

Between earning his Ph.D. in 2001 and arriving at SSU in 2009, he taught at University of California, Berkeley, University of San Francisco, Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), and Occidental College.

He is currently editing an anthology of contemporary writings in ethics, “Arguing About Ethics,” to be published by Routledge in 2013.

An inaugural event is planned in the spring of 2013.
