    The Creolizing Subject: Race, Reason, and the Politics of Purity.Michael J. Monahan - 2011 - Fordham University Press.
    How does our understanding of the reality of race as a category of being affect our understanding of racism as a social phenomenon, and vice versa? How should we envision the aims and methods of our struggles against racism?Traditionally, the Western political and philosophical tradition held that true social justice points toward a raceless future---that racial categories are themselves inherently racist, and a sincere advocacy for social justice requires a commitment to the elimination or abolition of race altogether. This book (...)

    Sartre's Critique of Dialectical Reason and the Inevitability of Violence: Human Freedom in the Milieu of Scarcity.Michael J. Monahan - 2008 - Sartre Studies International 14 (2):48-70.
    In his Critique of Dialectical Reason , Sartre argues that it is the milieu of scarcity that generates human conflict. His account of scarcity is rather ambiguous however, and at points he seems to claim that conflict is inevitable given the context of scarcity. In this article I provide a brief account of Sartre's position, and offer a critical evaluation of that position. Finally, I argue that Sartre's claims regarding the necessity of conflict are excessive, and that the resources provided (...)

    Racism and “Self-Love”: The Case of White Nationalism.Michael J. Monahan - 2021 - Critical Philosophy of Race 9 (1):1-15.
    The rise in the public profile of “alt-right” and “white nationalist” groups in recent years is often described as a rise in “hate groups.” The presumption in this nomenclature is that these sorts of groups are defined essentially in terms of their shared hatred for some or all nonwhite individuals and groups. However, the rhetoric of such groups is couched not as hatred, but rather in terms of “self-love”—they do not hate other groups, they are just looking out for themselves. (...)

    Why Epistemic Decolonization?Pascah Mungwini, Aaron Creller, Michael J. Monahan & Esme G. Murdock - 2019 - Journal of World Philosophies 4 (2):70-105.
    Why decolonize knowledge and philosophy? Pascah Mungwini proposes that epistemic decolonization should be implemented to remain true to the spirit of philosophy and to the idea of humanity. Aaron Creller, Michael Monahan, and Esme Murdock focus on different aspects of Mungwini’s proposal in their individual responses. Creller suggests some “best practices” so that comparative epistemology can take into account the parochial embeddedness of universal reason. While Monahan underscores that world philosophy as a project must openly acknowledge its own incompleteness and (...)

  7. Tensional Landscapes: The Dynamics of Boundaries and Placements.Sven Arntzen, Ethel Hazard, Wolfgang Luutz, Michael J. Monahan, Shannon M. Mussett, Herbert G. Reid, John M. Rose, John Ryks, John A. Scott & Dennis E. Skocz (eds.) - 2003 - Lexington Books.
    The contributors to this volume address global, regional, and local landscapes, cosmopolitan and indigenous cultures, and human and more-than-human ecology as they work to reveal place-specific tensional dynamics. This unusual book, which covers a wide-ranging array of topics, coheres into a work that will be a valuable reference for scholars of geography and the philosophy of place.

  8. A Theory of Racial Oppression and Liberation.Michael J. Monahan - 2003 - Dissertation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
    This dissertation is a formulation of a theory of racism that transcends the narrow focus upon individual intentions and attitudes, capturing the ways and means by which it becomes an "institutionalized" part of the larger social context. I argue that this larger institutional level of racism is what makes it oppressive, as opposed to simple prejudice or dislike. Chapter one establishes this basic position, and moves directly into an analysis of oppression, appealing to five basic "premises" which delineate the boundaries (...)

    Liberalism and the Challenge of Race.Michael J. Monahan - 2010 - Social Theory and Practice 36 (4):689-704.
    Derrick Darby’s Rights, Race, and Recognition and Ronald R. Sundstrom’s The Browning of America and the Evasion of Social Justice are two recent efforts to answer the challenges that race and racism pose to liberal theory. Darby draws upon civil rights and abolitionist discourse to advance an “externalist” account of political rights, while Sundstrom explores the strains placed upon liberalism by recent demographic trends. In this review essay, I provide a brief account of their overall arguments, and offer some further (...)

    Emancipatory Affect Bell Hooks on Love and Liberation.Michael J. Monahan - 2011 - CLR James Journal 17 (1):102-111.
    Love is a recurring theme in bell hooks' thought, where it is explicitly linked to her understanding of freedom and liberation. In this essay, I will bring together some of hooks' most important writings on love in order to clarify her account of the relationship between love and liberation. I will argue that, for hooks, the practice of love and the practice of freedom are inextricably connected, and any liberatory project must be undertaken within the context of an ethics of (...)
