The problem I have with this book and many like it is not in its intent or its depth and scope research it s that when all is said and done it does not conclusively or convincingly make its case that this or that mostly socio economics culture and poverty is the sole or driving casual influence on demographic outcome differences In fact it comes close to what I ve seen Ben Goldacre refer to as pseudodebunking It also muddles a lot of ideas and skirts dangerously close to science denial at times The chopstick story is cute but completely out of date and irrelevant when applied to modern statistical genetics It obfuscates with examples and counterpoints and certainly presents some healthy and much needed scepticism but it does nothing to conclusively debunk or disprove anythingFirst of all the fact that raceethnicity is a man made somewhat social concept does not preclude it having biological underpinnings and neither does it negate it being useful in understanding population differences Almost all epidemiology is carried out by allocating to imperfect categories that is just how the science is Also the fact that there is overlap and blurred boundaries as well as possible large within differences does not mean average between differences are irrelevant that is just basic bimodal distributionFor example focusing on the intelligence and I parts Yes I is variable and unstable yes it is an imperfect measure and yes reverse causation when it comes to genetics is potentially an issue But does all this nitpicking of the methodology rule out genetics influencing intelligence or that there may exist genetic differences that influence intelligence between populations No it doesn t Perhaps the effects are small perhaps environmental effects are mostly responsible but I get the impression the author doesn t really want to know The take home from this book is not that race science has been debunked but that it has been abandoned No scientist who values his career would touch this kind of research in this climateSo while this book is a fairly good and thorough critiue of the flaws of both previous research and the scientific method in general it left me wondering if the author would apply the same scrutiny to research which supported the null hypothesis that genetic differences do not account for any social outcomes Because for the time being and on the evidence presented here the hypothesis remains a hypothesis Poil de carotte re emergenceof scientific Soldat Peaceful (Folio Junior) (French Edition) research into Les douze travaux d'Hercule - Petites histoires de la Mythologie - Dès 9 ans racial differences Superior tells the disturbing story of the persistent thread of belief in biological Les émotions de Gaston - J'ai peur racial differences in the world of science After the horrors of the Nazi Hermès, le dieu aux mille dons (PETITES HISTOIRES MYTHOLOGIE) (French Edition) regime in World War II the mainstream scientific world turned its back on eugenics and the study of Pierre et le loup (Mes petits contes classiques) racial difference But a worldwide network of intellectual The Three Little Pigs (Keepsake Stories) racists and segregationists uietly founded journals and funded L'Iliade et l'Odyssée research providing the kind of shoddy studies that were ultimately cited in Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murrays 1994 title The Bell Curve which purported to show differences in intelligence among Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours (Folio Junior Textes classiques) (French Edition) racesIf the vast majority of scientists and scholars disavowed these ideas and considered Zeus, le roi des dieux - Dès 9 ans race a social construct it was an idea that still managed to somehow survive in the way scientists thought about human variation and genetics Dissecting the statements and work of contemporary scientists studying human biodiversity most of whom claim to be just following the data Angela Saini shows us how again and again even mainstream scientists cling to the idea that Le jardin secret race is biologically Une nounou ça sert à quoi ?
