What is Wrong with Implicit Bias? - An Investigation of the Moral Problems with Implicit Bias

Olofsson, Jakob LU (2015) FPRK01 20142
Practical Philosophy
Abstract
Implicit Bias is the automatic and unconscious tendency to associate certain traits with members of particular groups, which affect judgements and/or interactions with members from the denoted group. In philosophy the concept of Implicit Bias has often been treated as a thick normative (negative) concept, which I refute in my paper. My suggestion is that Implicit Bias, when it is wrong, is wrong because of wrongful discrimination.
