My position in this paper is not one of advocacy but one of analysis. There is no need for a philosopher to reinforce the voices of women. Nor am I here in a position of the compleat analyst. There is no need for a philosopher to reinforce the voices of scientists and other non-philosophic analysts. I am here as one whose intellectual loyalty is to the pursuit of logical and moral illumination.
In the pursuit of logical illumination, I shall attempt to explicate policy, policy analysis, and affirmative action plans. In the pursuit of moral illumination, I shall discuss the policy of affirmative action relative to the kind of society in which we want to live and the kind of men and women we wish to see nurtured in such a society.
