Full description for Feminist Epistemologies
"Feminist Epistemology" is a collection of original essays exploring the intersections of gender and knowledge. It focuses on the heart of traditional epistemology - a field of study that until now has proved largely impervious to feminist enquiry. Contributors examine the traditional problems of epistemology - the nature of knowledge, justification and objectivity. However, in probing the difference that gender makes to such questions, the questions themselves are transformed. As traditional assumptions are challenged from the perspective of gender, a new set of problems is revealed. Who is the subject of knowledge? How does the social position of the subject affect the production of knowledge? And what is the connection between knowledge and politics? Taking on the insights other feminist studies have afforded to the field of epistemology, and developing new ones, this collection strives to reframe a discipline that many feminists have been keen to abandon.
