Linda Martín Alcoff Interviewed on the Elucidations Podcast

The latest episode of the Elucidations Podcast (produced by University of Chicago Philosophy) features Professor Linda Martín Alcoff, on the subject of identity. According to interviewers Emily Dupree and Matt Teichman,

“In this episode, Linda Martín Alcoff argues that a person’s identity influences the way they think of the society and the world, but also that it does not exhaustively determine that person’s outlook. The person’s individual psychological quirks and the social status they occupy are both factors that affect the way they think of things politically. Furthermore, in order to really understand the influence a person’s social status has over their outlook, we have to look at the history the social groups to which they belong.”
