A philosophy and religion professor at Syracuse University gave an interview to The New York Times Thursday in which he critiqued the notion of pure reason as simply being a "white male Euro-Christian construction.”

Prof. John Caputo was being interviewed by fellow philosophy professor George Yancy for the 13th installment of an interview series Yancy conducts with philosophers regarding racial topics.

Given its emphasis on first principles and abstract thought, it may be tempting to view academic philosophy as a turf where the race of participants matters little, but Caputo says that’s entirely untrue. In fact, race is of central importance, and it’s proven by the mundane phrases philosophers use.

"‘White’ is of the utmost relevance to philosophy, and postmodern theory helps us to see why,” Caputo says in the interview. "I was once criticized for using the expression ‘true north.’It reflected my Nordo-centrism, my critic said, and my insensitivity to people who live in the Southern Hemisphere. Of course, no such thing had ever crossed my mind, but that points to the problem. We tend to say ‘we’ and to assume who ‘we’ are, which once simply meant ‘we white male Euro-Christians.’

And just to add some fun to this mix, let's not forget the highly unpopular opinions of James Watson, co-discoverer of the DNA structure and winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize in medicine (back when it was awarded solely on merit) on innate intelligence and race. Just had to throw this in to spice things up. No "hate" here, just looking to keep the debate lively.

I thought the same thing at first but part of their olive skin color probably comes from centuries of interbreeding with brown peoples.

So the power to comprehend and deduce in a rational and orderly way also known as critical thinking is a White Male construct?

Would have sworn it was a Conservative construct since it is overwhelmingly obvious the Progressive Left is void of it.

True north is a euphemism for white privilege. Not an actual thingy having to do with polarity and stuff. It's like gravity- mystical. White constructs are racist.

No. We should emulate the losers because we don't want them to feel bad. And when the economy crashes because we are all losers, we all get to starve. Finally equality!

That can't be. I thought only atheists used reason? See other thread.

So basically what he is saying (or should be saying) is if not for the awesome ability and intellect of the white males frontal lobe reasoning skills, the human race coming out of the jungle/stone age would not have happened.

So the next time someone wipes their ass with something besides their hand they can thank a white male and then just keep on thanking us from there as their day goes on.

Take the white male out of human history and human history looses everything down to flush toilets.

All I have to say to all non-white males; You're welcome .

That said, the ability to jump is an equally important ability in bringing mankind into the modern world.
