It’s interesting how it is easy to come up with candidates for malign intellectual influence among left of center 1970s heavyweights — e.g., Foucault, Edward Said, Stephen Jay Gould, or John Rawls.
But who since then?
Kimberle Crenshaw for inventing the term “intersectionialism”?
The guy who invented “microaggression”?
Not exactly heavyweights…
I’ve often pointed out that a distinguishing feature of The Great Awokening is its lowbrowness: e.g., first there was Ta-Nehisi Coates, and now there is Ibram X. Kendi.
But help me out here. Are there any real smart Woke intellectuals who I am overlooking?
