Raza y naturaleza humana

Contenido principal del artículo


Peter Wade


La mayoría de los académicos sostienen que «la raza» no tiene relación con la naturaleza humana. Una minoría asevera que la tiene. Yo creo que «la raza» es una categoría cultural que puede convertirse en parte materializada de la experiencia humana. Dicha materialización ayuda a explicar la idea de la raza.
