Prejudice," wrote Edmund Burke,"renders a man's virtue his habit." How strange this sounds to modernears! In recent times, to call someone prejudiced is to relegate him to the lowest rung of intellectual life. But is there anyone who isn't prejudiced? As Dr. Theodore Dalrymple argues in this brief and bracing rehabilitation of both prejudice itself and the necessity of prejudice, someone who walks out into the world completely unprejudiced is as helpless as a newborn babe. Dr. Dalrymple insists that the pretense that we can be totally unprejudiced is a pretext for licentiousness and lack of self-control, to the detriment not only of the individuals themselves but of society as a whole.
Today, the word prejudice has come to seem synonymous with bigotry; therefore the only way a person can establish freedom from bigotry is by claiming to have wiped his mind free from prejudice. English psychiatrist and writer Theodore Dalrymple shows that freeing the mind from prejudice is not only impossible, but entails intellectual, moral and emotional dishonesty. The attempt to eradicate prejudice has several dire consequences for the individual and society as a whole.
