The new anti-science nonsense is that “the authority of science” depends “on a colonial and racialized form of power.”
It is good that the Left is being honest about their anti-science attitudes. After all, they’ve never been interested in the work of science but simply in labeling their beliefs as science. They don’t try to argue for global warming except by appealing to “everyone believes it” reasoning. Conservatives are ridiculed for being skeptical on global warming and Darwinian evolution as if science is nothing more than bowing to popular opinions.
So, I’m not at all surprised when we see anti-science statements from Leftists.
Campus Reform reports, “Feminist prof says ‘traditional science’ is rooted in racism.”
Sara Giordano, who left the field of neuroscience to become a Women’s Studies professor at UC-Davis, opened up about her feelings towards the sciences in a recent essay for Catalyst, a journal of feminist theory.
Science, she worries, has “earned its epistemic authority through its co-constitution with colonization and slavery,” and therefore “relies on a colonial and racialized form of power.”
This woman isn’t alone. The idea is found all over the world.
