On Charles Mills’s “Black Radical Kantianism:” A Story of Grief as/and/or Gratitude


Journal Title:

Radical Philosophy Review


Type of Work:

Article | Post-print: After Peer Review

The depth of my commitment to this sentence is only rivaled by the depth of my grief as/and/or gratitude for my 17 years of friendship with Charles Mills.
