2 thoughts on “Implicit bias on Philosophy TV!

  1. Here’s a nice article from the Washington Post on implicit bias I use in the “critical thinking” part of my baby logic course: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A27067-2005Jan21.html I also have students take the IAT online before reading the article and the class discussion.

    I’ll be doing this the week after next, in my updated discussion of “informal fallacies.” Instead of the traditional list–ad hominum, ad popululum, whatever–I do implicit bias, the Linda Problem, confirmation bias and the paradox of choice.

    I’ve had a look at the video. It’s good. Too long for me to show in class an it gets beyond what I’m doing to some even more interesting stuff. But I’ll probably link it to my class website as an option for students who are interested in the implicit bias issue. If I were doing say a course in epistemology or philosophy of mind I might do even more with this video.

  2. I was really excited about the topic, and then significantly disappointed when I realized they haven’t delved at all into what people have written in critical race theory except for noting the popular studies done.
