Quote: “There are two threads to Weinstein’s career. The first is his specialized work, which focuses on the intersection of the history of philosophy and contemporary political theory. His main interest is in theories of diversity and justice, with special attention to education and otherness, human rationality, and the roles of emotion in moral judgment. The other thread in Weinstein’s career emphasizes creating and cultivating a large-scale philosophical discussion with non-academic audiences.” — JackRusselWeinstein.com
