Who is Satoshi Kanazawa?

Satoshi Kanazawa is a Reader in Management at the London School of Economics. His work uses evolutionary psychology to analyze social sciences such as sociology, economics, and anthropology. Kanazawa has been very controversial, which he and other sympathetic scientists attribute to political correctness and censorship. Some of his work is not considered by his critics to be mainstream evolutionary psychology.

In response to ongoing controversy over views such as that African countries suffer chronic poverty and illness because their people have lower IQs and that black women are "objectively less attractive" than other races, he was dismissed from writing for Psychology Today, his current employer — the London School of Economics — has prohibited him from publishing in non-peer-reviewed outlets for 12 months, and a group of 68 evolutionary psychologists issued an open letter titled "Kanazawa's bad science does not represent evolutionary psychology". On the other hand, an international group of 23 scientists defended Kanazawa's work with another open letter, published in the Times Higher Education.
