    Abstract:
    English abstract: A paper arguing the relevance of a cognitive narratological perspective and a retrospective stance attentive to hindsight bias in order to clarify the debate on racial differences and population diversity in biology. The issue is discussed with reference to the dichotomy between 'lumpers' and 'splitters' in paleoanthropology as formulated by Stephen Jay Gould. ________________________________________________________________________________ Spanish abstract: Propone este artículo la relevancia de una perspectiva narratológica cognitivista, y atenta a la retrospección y a la distorsión retrospectiva, a la hora de clarificar el debate en biología sobre la cuestión de las diferencias raciales y de la diversidad de poblaciones. Esta cuestión se discute en relación con la dicotomía propuesta por Stephen Jay Gould entre 'agregadores' (lumpers) y 'fragmentadores' (splitters) en paleoantropología.
