Philosophy Talk: A Kantian Analysis of Xenophobia (1996; 01:24:52)
A public lecture in philosophy, intended for a general academic audience, delivered to the Institute for Research in the Humanities, SUNY/Stonybrook. I try to answer the question of how it is possible for politically opportunistic racist or xenophobic ethnic ideologies to turn family members and longstanding friends into enemies virtually overnight. After the lecture I answer questions from and engage in occasionally humorous dialogue with the audience. This talk may be of interest to institutions in the United States at which I have had to decline invitations to speak, because of my status as a Suspicious Traveler on the U. S. Transportation Security Administration’s Watch List.
