Matt Schillizzi “Politics and Prisons” 1. Main Claim: She talks about how great philosophers and writers write about prison experiences. “My interest in these issues [ridicule from State/government] actually precedes my own imprisonment” (34). = She learned a lot from prison. She wrote one of her pieces while in jail. Relates prison to slavery (21). Similar to oppression, because of meaningless past politics that we feel when in prison. 2. Main Points a. She was asked if philosophy could play a role in political culture in America, and if her philosophy has influenced aspects of her life. Answer is something like how philosophy is how we view everything, so how can we develop anything (ie the political culture) without automatically thinking in that mindset, and how can we evaluate thinking in other terms, when we focus on our original views? (22). b. Multiculturalism vs Racial Justice (31). Huge difference. Multiculturalism is usually confused with antiracism, but it really means to create a cross- racial community to keep the fight for equality and justice permanent.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
