Typecasting: On the Arts and Sciences of Human Inequality: A History of Dominant Ideas
Elizabeth Ewen (au)
Investigating the practice of science in the service of prejudice, this book brings to life the dark history of the Age of Democracy, where every step toward equality has found a parallel retreat into hierarchical dogma. In 1776, as some Amer. colonials proclaimed that all men are created equal, Johann Blumenbach, court physician to Englandís King George III, subdivided humanity into 5 unequal categories. This monumental work of popular history exposes the pivotal developments that have made stereotypes a persistent, common language. Moving across centuries & continents in 30 vignettes, the book uncovers the incubation of modern stereotypes in the halls of science & aesthetics & traces their materialization in the popular imagination. Illustrations.
