I am working to extend our familiar notion of 'wrongful discrimination' to include what I call 'wrongful intimate discrimination'. Wrongful intimate discrimination consists of morally wrongful ways of selecting and rejecting people when it comes to choosing our friends and acquaintances, our sexual and marital partners.

Wrongful intimate discrimination is a symptom of our ailing, racially hierarchised, political societies. I prescribe and defend a cure: miscegenation. Indeed, I argue that, in an ailing society, such as our own, we have a duty to miscegenate.

Welcome, Nathaniel, to the Public Philosophy Network (PPN) and to my affinity group, Philosophers in the City.  I have been a bit AWOL as I was working in Rwanda in January and now am devoting a lot of time to writing grants to support this network.  Hope that we connect on-line, and that we can discuss your interests in cities...  Sharon

Thanks so much for the article! I will get to it soon, but from just reading the abstract, I think that I will really enjoy it!

All the best!

Hi Nathaniel,


Thanks for joining the network! I'm glad that you are find it valuable. I agree that this could be a fantastic way to connect with others, but I can't take credit for the conception of the site--I'm just helping to get things going with it. :)


I couldn't open the article through the link that you shared with me, but I really appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing. Perhaps if you have it as a pdf file you could send it to me in a message? It's good that we are already seeing how to best use the site and share materials! This is good practice to figure things out...
