Loving Immigrants in America

Three critics will discuss the book "Loving Immigrants in America: An Experiential Philosophy of Personal Interaction" (Lexington Books, 2017) by Daniel Campos. This book is a philosophical account of a Central American immigrant's personal experience in the United States. Narrative and reflective at once, it is written from the standpoint of American philosophy enriched by fiction, poetry, song lyrics and memoirs from the Americas. It recommends an ethic of love – resilient love – for the interpersonal relations and day to day interactions between immigrants and hosts in the U.S. today. This ethic draws from the concepts of agapic love by Charles Peirce and loving resistance of Maria Lugones. The critics will focus on responding philosophically and experientially to the proposed ethic.
