Michael Bycroft on the concept of biological race
Michael Bycroft published an essay on the thorny question of the concept of biological race, in the French magazine Books. Here is a translated abstract:
"We are told that race is a social construct. But the biological dimension of race is nevertheless hard to deny. A historian of science delves into the maze of claims and counter-claims on this topic. He reaches a surprising conclusion: what if the real problem is not the idea of biological race but the belief that biology can solve our social and intellectual problems?"
