This book offers a phenomenological perspective on the bigot, whom it describes as someone whose prejudices tend to intersect in their ideological and political expressions. It explains why prejudice appeals to the bigot, how he chooses his targets, and what impulses are common to his worldview. As a prisoner of his prejudices, the book argues that the bigot validates himself by resorting to myths, stereotypes, and double standards. It examines the bigot's way of thinking about the world, the roles that he plays, and his political ambitions. To understand how bigotry works, the book combines the existential, psychological, sociological, and political elements that shape what Jean-Paul Sartre calls “the etiology of hatred”.
