Learning how to live in the dissonance



Dr. Cornel West Lecture 'Politics in the Humanities' at Brown University (2018).

Cornel Ronald West (born June 2, 1953) is an American philosopher, political activist, social critic, author, and public intellectual. The son of a Baptist minister, West focuses on the role of race, gender, and class in American society and the means by which people act and react to their "radical conditionedness."

A radical democrat and democratic socialist, West draws intellectual contributions from multiple traditions, including Christianity, the black church, Marxism, neopragmatism, and transcendentalism.

Among his most influential books are Race Matters (1994) and Democracy Matters (2004).
