Book Club: Unshrinking

Posted by Daniel Kosacz for Study of Ethics in Society

Noa Dahan, a part-time instructor in the Department of Philosophy, will lead the discussions of Unshrinking (2024) by Kate Manne. Manne highlights fatphobia as a social justice issue that has received insufficient attention. The book tackles ethical questions in arguing that harmful treatment of (and biases against) others on the basis of body size is a moral and political problem on the societal level. The book will argue that the solution to the harms of fatphobia will not be individualistic self-love, but instead will require societal transformation, like other social issues.
