Abstract and Keywords

Discussions of race are often entangled with ethnicity and vice versa. Indeed, some of the most difficult epistemic and social problems they each raise rely on solutions that involve the other. None of the views that propose solutions that involve the elimination of race or ethnicity, their reduction to each other or something else, or that neglect the constructive and realist elements in these phenomena provides a viable alternative that can serve as basis for solving the critical epistemic and social problems that race and ethnicity raise. The concepts of race and ethnicity, and the distinction between them, can be preserved through their proper understanding.

Keywords: eliminativism, constructionism, reductionism, neo-realism, race and ethnicity
