Statement by PSSA Executive on Dr Louise Mabille’s recent article in Praag

The Philosophy Society of Southern Africa (PSSA) distances itself unequivocally from the views attributed to Dr Louise Mabille in her recent article in Praag.  The PSSA is dismayed at the ignorant and racist views expressed within this piece.  Both the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pretoria, and the PSSA, condemn her article in the strongest terms.  Central to philosophical engagement is the rigorous exchange of ideas; there is no place in such engagement for racism and prejudice.
