The Politics of Survival

This chapter discusses the potential application of the Critical Common-Sensism (CCS) in addressing the issue of unintentional discrimination. It suggests that CCS is uniquely suited to address social critical concerns about discriminatory beliefs that can become ingrained within one's background beliefs without her or his awareness because it calls for a critical examination of the common sense beliefs that underwrite human cognition. When ideally applied, CCS is also able to take into account scientific and agapic ideals.

Keywords:   Critical Common-Sensism, unintentional discrimination, social criticism, common sense beliefs, agapic ideals
