My favourite nominalism / evolution image November 4, 2015

I am a conceptual nominalist, which I explain to some extent here. One of my favourite images to explain this is below. Also good for explaining the species problem, which reflects or exemplifies the nominalism/realism debate.

    That’s a nice rebuttal to the race deniers, too.

    Love it. Heard about the new research on alleged differences between male/female brains? Turns out, not so much. It’s funny how evolution seemingly programmed us to assume such disparity (between “race”, gender, etc) actually exists based upon minute visual/morphological differences. So skin deep is our species…. (sigh)
