By Sarah Tyson, Joshua M. Hall (eds.)

Western philosophy’s courting with prisons stretches from Plato’s personal incarceration to the fashionable period of mass incarceration. Philosophy Imprisoned: the affection of knowledge within the Age of Mass Incarceration attracts jointly a wide variety of philosophical thinkers, from either in and out felony partitions, within the usa and past, who draw on a number of serious views (including phenomenology, deconstruction, and feminist concept) and old and modern figures in philosophy (including Kant, Hegel, Foucault, and Angela Davis) to contemplate prisons during this new ancient period. All of those participants have studies inside of legal partitions: a few are or were incarcerated, a few have taught or are educating in prisons, and all were scholars of either philosophy and the carceral approach. The strong testimonials and theoretical arguments are acceptable interpreting not just for philosophers and legal theorists ordinarily, but in addition for criminal reformers and abolitionists.

These would include not only intentional phenomena such as beliefs, hopes, fears, and desires, but nonintentional phenomena such as pains and states of undirected anxiety.

Less basic than these are the representations that have these as their conditions of satisfaction. These are prior intentions and perceptual memories. In these cases, we still have the causal component, but we lose the direct causal connection with the conditions of satisfaction. Memories represent the past; prior intentions represent the future.

You can believe something and the belief can be satisfied even if the thing you believe didn’t cause your belief and you can desire something and your desire can be satisfied even if your desire didn’t cause the satisfaction of the desire.
