EGENIS seminar: "Epistemic Risk Meets Biological Race Realism", Dr Celso Neto (University of Exeter)

Biological race realism is the view that humans form biologically real groups. This view has a long history related to racists, colonialists, and pseudoscientific practices (e.g., Bernasconi and Lott 2000). Nevertheless, while these practices have been thoroughly exposed and rejected, it does not follow that biological race realism is wrong. In fact, new defenses of this view have emerged recently based on sophisticated and reputable work in science and philosophy (Hardimon 2003; 2017; Spencer 2012; 2014; 2019b; 2019a).. Full details
