Essentialism is a mode of thought that uses scientific data to argue that racial groups are genetically distinct populations. Essentialists describe "races as groups of people who share certain innate, inherited biological traits, aka use of biological evidence to demonstrate racial differences". As its counterpart, anti-essentialism uses biological evidence to demonstrate that "race groupings do not reflect patterns of human biological variation, countering essentialist claims to the contrary".

A general practical result - which I propose to call 'Berkeley's razor' - of [Berkeley's] analysis of physics allows us a priori to eliminate from physical science all essentialist explanations.

This razor is sharper than Ockham's: ALL entities are ruled out except those which are perceived.
