LSP 200: P HILOSOPHICAL A PPROACHES TO M ULTICULTURALISM Instructor: Robin Weiss Office Hours: 1:30-2:30 Tues. and Thurs., and by appointment (in Lewis 1658 or the adjoining offices) Email: [email protected] (but if you can, please talk to me in person instead) A liberal modern democracy like the one in which we all live is considered the best for allowing different people to all pursue happiness and self-fulfillment side by side, no matter their differences. A society like ours is meant to allow each person to coexist alongside others and to allow this to occur with a minimum of conflict, oppression, social strife, or disharmony. The United States, and Western democracies like it, remain paradigmatic examples of how such a feat is to be accomplished, and they set a high standard for the developing nations now increasingly torn apart by racial, ethnic, and religious conflict. Yet European countries find it increasingly difficult to manage their own multi-ethnic societies, and the United States is a country that arguably owes its very existence to the genocide of native populations, the enslavement of Africans, and the exploitation of immigrant laborers. Today, it is a country in which our liberal democratic institutions fail to address many social ills, and where many unanswered questions remain about just how many different groups can populate the same nation.

What students are saying

    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.
