Rivista di Estetica N.S. 64, (1/2017), anno LVII

discrimination in philosophy

A cura di: Vera Tripodi

Our practices of knowledge attribution, acquisition, and justification can systematically disadvantage women and other subordinated groups: by excluding them from inquiry; denying them epistemicauthority, denigrating their modes of knowledge; producing theories that portray them as inferior,deviant; producing social theories that make gendered power relations invisible;reinforcing genderbias and social hierarchies.
Can we remedy these forms of injustice? This issue of the Rivista di estetica addresses what needs to change in our knowledge practices; how we can challenge the narrowness of what is understood as philosophical knowledge; how the concept of knowledge should be considered in connection with notions such as trust, reliance, testimony, authority, credibility; how to revisit theways in which we measure quality and ability and what we should do in order to promote diversity and pluralism in knowledge.
