New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Critical Philosophy of Race.

15607880225_85552b9e80_z

From the Project Muse website for the journal:

Critical Philosophy of Race will examine issues raised by the concept of race, the practices and mechanisms of racialization, and the persistence of various forms of racism across the world. It opposes racism in all forms; it rejects the pseudosciences of old-fashioned biological racialism; it denies that anti-racism and anti-racialism summarily eliminate race as a meaningful category of analysis. “

karl_rahner_by_letizia_mancino_cremerFrom the Philosophy Document Centre website for the journal:

Philosophy & Theology is a peer-reviewed journal that addresses all areas of interest to these two ancient disciplines and explores the common ground that joins them. While not a journal of the philosophy of religion, one issue each year includes articles devoted to the thought and legacy of the theologian Karl Rahner. Rahner’s appropriation of diverse theological and philosophical sources provided an innovative conceptual framework that established his reputation as one of the most influential systematic theologians of the Vatican II era.”
