Franz Boas – Liberal Icon, Scientific Fraud
By Sam Francis
Two of the major superstitions of our time are the notion that man is merely a blank slate whose behavior is merely the product of the social environment and its sister, that race doesn’t exist. Yet one by one, the pseudo-scientific sources of these myths are being discredited by serious scientists, and last week, one of the biggest sources of all took a nose dive.
Franz Boas, often called the grandfather of modern anthropology and a pioneer pusher of the idea that race is not a very meaningful concept, merely a “social construct” not found in nature, probably ranks with Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud as one of the most influential thinkers of the modern age. As a Columbia professor from 1899 to 1942, he virtually created modern anthropology, and the students he trained—among them, Margaret Mead and some of the most famous names in the field—dominated the discipline until only a few years ago.
One of Boas’ favorite targets was so-called “scientific racism,” and much of his own writing was intended to combat what he saw—sometimes rightly—as unscientific or simply false thinking about race.
But it now turns out that Boas himself was guilty of no small degree of unscientific blunder—and maybe even fraud.
In 1912, Boas published what became a classic study that claimed to show that the skull shapes (“cranial forms”) of the descendants of European immigrants to the United States altered from those of the original immigrants. Boas offered no explanation for why the changes took place, but if they were real, his finding pretty much wiped out the idea that different racial and ethnic types differ in fixed physical characteristics.
“did much to establish the notion in human genetics that what are transmitted in the germ plasm are not fixed characters but potentialities … dependent upon the environment for the particular form they will assume. The ‘nature-nurture’ controversy was largely obviated by this alternative.”
In political terms, if human beings have few or no “fixed characters” and are shaped by the social environment, then what we know as modern liberalism is in business. So is communism, which also assumes that human beings can be transformed by manipulating the social environment.
It’s no accident that Boas was a lifelong sympathizer of Marxism.
Unfortunately, for the social and human engineers,………… Read more…
