Dr. John Harfouch Associate Professor, Pre-Law Advisor, Philosophy Contact 1310 Ben Graves DriveMorton HallRoom 222Huntsville, AL 35899 Campus Map firstname.lastname@example.org Biography Dr. Harfouch researches the mind-body problem and the concept of race. His recent essay, Kant's Racial Mind-Body Unions," argues that Kant's concept of race should be recognized as a solution to the problem. He is wrapping up a manuscript entitled "Another Mind-Body Problem: Mind, Body, and Race from Descartes to Kant," which argues that the mind-body problem is less a problem of beings that lack unity, but rather unifies minds and bodies that lack being. Earlier this year, Dr. Harfouch saw The Cambridge Foucault Lexicon appear, a volume of which he is co-editor.
