Overview
Would you want to be operated on by a surgeon trained at a medical school that did not evaluate its students? Would you want to fly in a plane designed by people convinced that the laws of physics are socially constructed? Would you want to be tried by a legal system indifferent to the distinction between fact and fiction? These questions may appear absurd, but there are theories being seriously advanced by radical multiculturalists that may force us to ask such questions. These scholars assert that such concepts as truth and merit are inextricably racist and sexist, that reason and objectivity are merely sophisticated masks for ideological bias, and that reality itself is nothing more than socially constructed mechanism for preserving the power of the ruling elite. In this volume, liberal legal scholars Daniel A. Farber and Suzanna Sherry mount a systematic critique of radical multiculturalism as a form of legal scholarship.
