Diversity and Inclusion

Western academic philosophy and before that, western philosophy beginning in the ancient world has largely had white male practitioners who spoke and wrote to other white males. Beginning in the 1970s, there has been a counter-trend in professional academic philosophy, led by individual scholars, with support from the American Philosophical Association. Studies in Feminism, LGBTQ issues, race, ethnicity, Latin American Philosophy, Asian American Philosophy, and Disability have entered the profession as integral parts of recognized scholarly work and the profession has become more demographically diverse. The University of North Texas Department of Philosophy and Religion has over the past twenty years affirmed this new intellectual and demographic inclusivity as a core element in all aspects of our work, goals, and daily functioning.
