9781402068348: Feminist Epistemology and Philosophy of Science: Power in Knowledge (Feminist Philosophy Collection (Hardcover))

Having enjoyed more than twenty years of development, feminist epistemology and philosophy of science are now thriving fields of inquiry, offering current scholars a rich tradition from which to draw. In addition to a recognition of the power of knowledge itself and its effects on women’s lives, a central feature of feminist epistemology and philosophy of science has been the attention they draw to the role of power dynamics within knowledge-seeking practices and the implications of these dynamics for our understandings of knowledge, science, and epistemology.

Feminist Epistemology and Philosophy of Science: Power in Knowledge collects new works that address today’s key challenges for a power-sensitive feminist approach to questions of knowledge and scientific practice. The essays build upon established work in feminist epistemology and philosophy of science, offering new developments in the fields, and representing the broad array of the feminist work now being done and the many ways in which feminists incorporate power dynamics into their analyses.

From the Back Cover:

This collection brings together exciting new works that address today’s key challenges for a feminist power-sensitive approach to knowledge and scientific practice. Taking up such issues as the role of contextualism in epistemology, democracy and dissent in knowledge practices, and epistemic agency under conditions of oppression, the essays build upon well-established work in feminist epistemology and philosophy of science such as standpoint theory and contextual empiricism, offering new interpretations and applications. Many contributions capture the current engagement of feminist epistemologists with the insights and programs of nonfeminist epistemologists, while others focus on the intersections between feminist epistemology and other fields of feminist inquiry such as feminist ethics and metaphysics.

An important resource both for students and scholars of feminist epistemology and philosophy of science, with sections of interest to social epistemologists and philosophers of science more generally, this collection represents the broad array of the feminist epistemological work now being done, and the many ways in which feminists incorporate power dynamics into their analyses. It clearly represents both the breadth and the depth of this now well-developed area of feminist scholarship.

About the Author:

Heidi Grasswick is Professor of Philosophy at Middlebury College in Vermont, USA. She holds a Ph.D. from University of Minnesota, an M.A. from Dalhousie University in Canada and a B.A. from University of Victoria in Canada. She is a former president of the Society for Analytical Feminism and the Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy and currently serves as an Associate Editor of the feminist philosophy journal Hypatia. Her research interests fall at the intersection of feminist epistemology and social epistemology, with a specific concern for the ethics of knowing well. She has published articles on the relationship between individuals and communities in knowing, the relationship between feminist and social epistemology, and more recently, the role of trust in sound knowledge-seeking.
