Criticism and response
Is a society without categorization of human beings even possible?
Criticism: The thesis does not discuss the possibility of building a society where people don't categorize each other.
Response: On the other hand, it does mention that categorization is a core feature of how the human mind works. And it also mentions that human cultures are built between human minds. In other words, it would not be reasonable to consider a society without categorization to be possible. Furthermore, categorization (with or without categorism) is not merely about categorizing other people - identity and other cateity is about categorizing oneself in relationship to other people. Can we imagine a society where the cateitization - the process of building and reproducing identities - does not exist?
