Professor Brad Elliott Stone

About

BRAD ELLIOTT STONE is Professor of Philosophy and African American Studies at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA.  He is currently Chair of the Department of African American Studies.

Professor Stone’s philosophical work is grounded in contemporary continental and American philosophy.  He uses those traditions to address questions about power, truth, subjectivity, and religion.  He is the co-editor of Rorty and the Religious (with Jacob Goodson, Cascade, 2012) and has written several articles and book chapters on the works of Michel Foucault, Cornel West, and Richard Rorty as they pertain to questions of religion, subjectivity, sexuality, and race.

A Fulbright Scholar to the University of Salamanca (Spain) in 1998-1999, Professor Stone also works in the area of 20th century Spanish philosophy.  He is currently finishing a translation of Eugenio Trías’s Ética y condición humana (with his undergraduate research assistant Carolina Nunez) and has published essays on Xavier Zubiri’s philosophy of religion.

Professor Stone is currently working on three manuscripts: (1) a book on Foucault’s methodology as a form of beyng-historical thinking (a la Heidegger), (2) a book on Cornel West’s prophetic pragmatism, and (3) a book on racial, gender, and sexual antirealism.
