Read e-book online Feminist Epistemology and American Pragmatism: Dewey and PDF

By Alexandra L. Shuford

Feminist philosophy identifies tensions inside mainstream theories of data. To create a extra egalitarian epistemology, strategies to those difficulties were as different because the traditions of philosophy out of which feminists proceed to emerge.
This ebook considers both bold methods theorized by means of Louise Antony and Lynn Hankinson Nelson.
The American thinker W.V.O. Quine locates wisdom as a department of empirical technological know-how. Shuford indicates how either Antony and Nelson use Quine's 'naturalized epistemology' to create empirically strong feminist epistemologies. even though, Shuford argues that neither can contain actual embodiment as a tremendous epistemic variable. The ebook argues that John Dewey's conception of inquiry extends past Quine's perception that wisdom has to be interrogated as an empirical topic. simply because Dewey insists that every one facets of expertise has to be topic to the experimental openness that's the hallmark of clinical reasoning, Shuford concludes that actual embodiment needs to play a tremendous half in wisdom claims.
