Alien Experience

New York, NY, USA: Oxford University Press (2020)

Abstract

“If I were a better human being, that person’s voice wouldn’t sound so shrill to me.” Many of us may have had such thoughts. They give voice to the worrying intuition that if we were less affected by sexism and racism, or better at keeping our tempers, our fellow humans would look and sound differently to us. Making sense of this unease requires us to re-think the relation between experiences and standing commitments; to reconsider what we mean by self-control; and to attend to empirical questions about perception, attention, emotion regulation, and tacit cognition.
