Interesting. I wrote in another thread
Today, anthropologists are united in trying to undo the errors of the past. Educational efforts (see, for example, the American Anthropological Association Statement on "Race"
) focus on teaching that the "race" notion was just one of those scientific theories (like phlogiston and the aether) that simply did not pan out.
Apparently, the American Anthropological Association has now gotten very serious about this, with Ford Foundation and NSF money, no less. Good for them!
