CHARLES MILLS

Having decided to bring home the volume containing my Kant essay, I thought that perhaps I ought actually to look inside the volume and see what else is there. It turns out to contain a brilliant essay by Charles Mills called "Dark Ontology: Blacks, Jews, and White Supremacy." I have long thought that Mills is one of the two or three most important political philosophers writing in English in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In the long run, I think his work will prove to be more important, though not more widely noticed, than that of Rawls. If any of you have not read his most important book, The Racial Contract, I urge you to get a copy now.
