And really, I’ve just introduced the topic and haven’t even begun to use the sources I’m focusing on… And I don’t have a proper introduction. I kinda start the paper with the following paragraph:
"The western philosopher has traditionally adopted an approach to inquiry which positions them in an assumed Universality where they are not only established as the knowers, but are also assured of the correctness of their beliefs. “Every belief is a considering-something-true,” as defined by Friedrich Nietzsche in his book, The Will To Power. A belief, interpreted in this manner, is not a proof, or a reasoning, but an opinion. The western tradition has largely shielded the western philosopher from questioning the truth of their Universality by removing the philosopher from their embodied existence. This habit of adopting a presumed Universal position encourages a “colorblind” construction of reality in which whiteness is the measure of value."
It’s not a paper about Nietzsche. It’s about “colorblind” approaches to philosophy by non-racist racists…………………………………
It’s due Saturday at 2:00pm, but I want to get it done this afternoon.
