Ingroups and Outgroups: What Psychology Doesn’t Say|Remarks on David Messick’s paper for the Ruffin Lectures, November 19, 1994

Business Ethics Quarterly 8 (S1):173-178 (1998)

Abstract

I am foregoing the discussant’s critical role in favor of a short examination of how one sociologist’s imagination is tantalized and irritated by some of the ideas and interconnections of Professor Messick’s paper. The question is, when it comes to ingroups and outgroups, why does race matter? Why does sex or gender matter? I will briefly make four points about sociobiology, favoritism toward the ingroup, hostility toward the outgroup, and finally, the conflict theorist’s favorite topic — resource allocation.
