Towards integral via assessment of implicit attitudes


(Durwin Foster) #1

It strikes me that to be genuinely inclusive, I will have to take responsibility for any and all implicit attitudes I might be carrying – often unconsciously – that relate to various in-group–out-group dynamics that constrain the movement into a worldcentric morality. It’s one thing to have the conscious attitude of wanting to include everybody, ala integral, and another thing to deal with the subconscious ethnocentric associations developed over the millennia. The good news is that there seems to be some way of at least assessing this issue, via the work of Project Implicit. Since gender stuff is something we explored in one cafe, I am sharing my results on that one.
