Cynical Theories
How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody
Helen Pluckrose - 2020-06-16
Goodreads Rating
A thought-provoking exploration of the controversial dogma that informs modern activist academic fields. From its origins in French postmodernism to its impact on cancel culture and social media, this book delves into the tenets that are all too often embraced as axiomatic in mainstream media. While acknowledging the need to challenge complacency, the authors argue that this often-radical scholarship does far more harm than good, noting its alarmingly inconsistent and illiberal ethics. A must-read for those who value science, reason, and consistently liberal ethics.
