I agree with that, but the question related to Philosophy as opposed to science

I am trying to say that Science bypasses cultural frontiers. Oskar Lange (Polish), Alec Nove (Russian), Henry D. Dicksinson (British), James Yunker (USA), etc.

 

I know that Social Sciences are especially susceptible to respond to cultural patronage or cronyism, but today these kind of counter-scientific influences tend to be deluded thanks the development of Science itself and the Internet, migration, crossbreeding, etc.

 

In addition, it is dangerous to base Science upon cultural/ethnical rivalry.

 

The extreme case of James Watson is especially shameful: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/fury-at-dna-pioneers-theory-africans-are-less-intelligent-than-westerners-394898.html

 

Kind regards,
