The Politics of Survival

Fordham University Press

This chapter introduces and situates the concept of Charles S. Peirce's affectivity within a post-Darwinian context. It explains the post-Darwinian themes in Peircean affectivity using the work of Antonio Damasio, and introduces Pierce's thought to facilitate a rich dialogue between Peircean affectivity and social criticism. This chapter also highlights the specific social criticism thematic of this book, particularly the role of well-meaning people in hegemonic groups in perpetuating unintentional racism and sexism against non-hegemonic groups.

Keywords:   Peircean affectivity, Charles S. Peirce, social criticism, Antonio Damasio, unintentional racism, sexism
