The other day I mentioned “civilization denialism.” This got me thinking: what other kinds of denialism exist?
Turns out there is a wikipedia page on it! They mention: HIV/AIDS denialism (denying that HIV causes AIDS); science denialism; climate change denialism; and holocaust denialism.
The common theme is ideology-driven denial of something that is well-established.
All have plenty of hits on google and google scholar – hundreds of thousands to millions.
I would like to suggest that there are also other denialisms. Here are some nominations:
- Civilization denialism: the denial that civilizations exist
- Human nature denialism: the denial that human nature exists
- Sex-difference denialism: the denial of average differences between the sexes
These each have very few matches on google, and none on google scholar.
Perhaps there are others too.
