Preliminary Remarks on Kant and Race: A Comparative Reflection

Li-Hsiang Lisa Rosenlee, University of Hawai'i, West O'ahu

In reflecting on the difficulty of reconciling these two aspects of Kant, I intend to also offer some preliminary remarks on how to approach similar problems in the study of comparative feminist philosophy.
