James Lindsay: A Deep Dive Into “Critical Social Justice” & How It Took Over the Humanities

March 25, 2020 Updated: March 26, 2020

To “expose the political corruption that’s taken hold of the university,” James Lindsay, Peter Boghossian, and Helen Pluckrose made headlines in 2018 with a series of hoax papers that were accepted in peer-reviewed journals.

Since then, Lindsay has made it his life’s mission to understand the ideas and theories underpinning what they dubbed “grievance studies.”

Just how are these identity-oriented academic fields rooted in deeply flawed methodologies?

And how has neo-Marxism and what Lindsay recently named “critical social justice” permeated the education system in America?

Lindsay documents his work on his website “New Discourses”, where a constantly updated “Social Justice Encyclopedia” can also be found.
