Published: 2002/06/01

Abstract

The article examines the paper by Biondi and Rickards entitled "The Scientific Fallacy of the Human Biological Concept of Race," published in this issue, and presents evidence supporting the scientific utility of race as a conceptual scientific tool. He shows how modern genetic research is validating the findings of physical anthropologists as to the identification of racial groups and their varying degrees of kinship.
