This chapter presents an overview of the future of 'philosophy' in the America. The future prospects of philosophy, to the extent that matters having to do with race are involved, are tied to developments beyond the scope of the discipline. If the enterprise of philosophy is to try to meet self-imposed responsibilities for clarifying the real possibilities for realizing reasonableness in a just and harmonious social order, then the philosophers have to accommodate critically revised considerations of raciality into the understandings of the constitutive features of our traditions, our work, and our practices. Romanticism reversed the values of the Enlightenment by substituting 'diversitarianism for uniformatarianism as the ruling preconception in most of the normative provinces of thought'. Academic philosophy in America has centered on the thought of particular male persons of European descent with, until very recently, systematic exclusions of traditions of thoughts of people of African descent, and of others.
