  1. What Is Race? Four Philosophers, Six Views.Phila Mfundo Msimang - 2022 - Philosophical Papers 51 (1):115-145.
    In this commentary I give an overview of the book "What is Race?: Four Philosophical Views," outlining the arguments each author makes in formulating and defending their respective views.

Error theorists have long responded that we can explain racial discrimination in terms of racial attitudes alone, so we need not explain it in terms of race itself. But to date there has been little detailed (...)
