Description

Our lives are structured by the social groups we’re a part of, from the mundane (runner, Firefly fan) to the monumental (valedictorian, star athlete), from the foreground (student, mother) to the background (man, American), and from the central (African American, transgender) to the superficial (cat lover? sandwich enthusiast?). These groups shape our identities, our thoughts, and our interaction with the world. But what are they? Are they real, like chairs and atoms? Or are they social fictions? How do you know if you’re in them? Who decides whether you’re in them? In this course, we’ll explore these social categories from three angles: metaphysics (what are they?), epistemology (how do we know about them?), and normative ethics (what should we do with them?). We’ll ask how they form us, and how we form them.
