The Study of Man: The Social Scientists Dissect Prejudice

"The Study of Man: The Social Scientists Dissect Prejudice." Commentary, May, 1946.

Excerpt: The intellectual current that now impels writers—in the big national magazines as well as the more serious little magazines—to talk about race prejudice has not left social scientists unmoved. In almost any current issue of the professional journals in sociology and social psychology we see them pausing from other researches to offer observations on race prejudice—what causes it, how it operates, how it can be fought. And empirical studies of one aspect or another of prejudice, once so rare, have now become more common.
