Review of Metaphysics 40 (2):374-376 (1986)

Donald Sievert

Empiricism is historically, even if not logically, connected with racism. Some of empiricism's primary proponents were racists. Rationalism provides a "modest conceptual barrier" to racism. These are the main theses of Bracken's collection of essays. One sees immediately that Bracken wishes to move a classical and allegedly purely philosophical debate into the ideological arena.
