Recent empirical studies suggest that implicit bias is widespread in many communities. Others suggest that these kinds of biases are likely to spoil the reliability of racial descriptors, and in an especially problematic way – causing already stigmatized communities to be unduly subjected to suspicion and scrutiny. I argue this gives these law enforcement agencies strong reasons to suspend this use of racial descriptors until they present further research that shows these worries are ultimately unfounded.
It is a commonly held view that Kant's system of metaphysics, as expounded in his Critique of Pure Reason and subsequent work, was definitively refuted by the late 19th and early 20th century developments in mathematics and the natural sciences.
Political concerns about who knows, and the ways in which values infuse authoritative and trustworthy knowledge, have been central to feminist epistemology but continue to be neglected within traditional analytic epistemology, despite a recent contextual turn within the field.
