The Force of Prejudice
On Racism and Its Doubles
By (author) Pierre-Andre Taguieff
Force of Prejudice by Pierre-Andre Taguieff
Book DescriptionCan humanity escape segregating behavior or master the tendency to exclusion? Where does the forceofprejudicecome from? How might one conceive the philosophical foundationsofan effective antiracism? Pursuing these questions, Pierre-Andre Taguieff puts forward a powerful thesis: that racism has evolved from an argument about races, naturalizing inequality between "biologically" defined groups on the basisoffearofthe other, to an argument about cultures, naturalizing historical differences and justifying exclusion. Correspondingly, he shows how antiracism must adopt the strategy that fits the varietyofracism it opposes.Looking at racial and racist theories one by one and then at their antiracist counterparts, Taguieff traces an intellectual genealogyofdifferentialist and inegalitarian waysofthinking. Already viewed as an essential workofreference in France, The ForceofPrejudiceis an invaluable tool for identifying and understanding both racism and its antidote in our day."
