Happy New Year and a Surprise About the Bloomsbury Collection!

Happy New Year.

In several months, The Bloomsbury Guide to Philosophy of Disability, which I have edited and anthologized, will be released. I am tremendously pleased with the collection which comprises twenty-six bold chapters. The book promises to be a significant intervention in philosophy.

To give you some idea of what to expect later this year, I have copied below the table of contents for the collection. As the titles of the chapters indicate, the chapters cover uncharted territory, open new avenues of inquiry, and will considerably expand the purview of philosophy of disability–a subfield of philosophy that I have laboured, for years, to bring into existence.

In the near future, I will post (a draft of ) the introduction to the book, a portion of which I presented to Philosophy, Disability and Social Change 3 #PhiDisSocCh3. First, however, I would like to offer a blurb about the book which will be used in promotional materials:

The Bloomsbury Guide to Philosophy of Disability encompasses the most innovative and insurgent work currently done in philosophy of disability, an emerging subfield of the academic discipline of philosophy. Edited and anthologized by disabled philosopher Shelley Lynn Tremain, this revolutionary collection comprises twenty-six chapters whose authors challenge how disability has historically been understood and represented in philosophy, critically undermining the deleterious assumptions that various subfields of philosophy—including bioethics, philosophy of mind, ethics, and political philosophy—produce and boldly articulating new insights and perspectives that run counter to these assumptions. Although this outstanding collection is especially pertinent to discussions amongst philosophers, it will be invaluable to scholars and students in a range of disciplines and to cultural workers and activists in an array of domains.”
