  1. On epistemic freedom and epistemic injustice.Karl Landström - forthcoming - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy.
    This article examines the relationship between epistemic freedom, and epistemic injustice and epistemic oppression. I situate epistemic freedom within the larger project of epistemic decolonisation and argue that epistemic freedom is central to both its positive and negative programme. Through exploring the intersections of the notion of epistemic freedom and the scholarship on epistemic injustice and oppression, I argue that one can think of epistemic injustices and oppression as infringements on epistemic freedom. I identify shared themes between the theorisation of (...)

  • Overcoming Eurocentrism: Exploring Ethiopian Modernity Through Entangled Histories and Coloniality.Fasil Merawi - 2024 - Social Epistemology 38 (2):222-234.
    In this article, the nature of Ethiopian modernity will be explored through the usage of concepts like coloniality, entangled modernities and uneven histories that are borrowed from decolonial and postcolonial perspectives. Through such an analysis, the Ethiopian discourse on modernity will be presented as a conception of social progress that developed in a dialectical relationship with liberal, Marxist, indigenous and religiously inspired conceptions of modernity. It will be argued that resisting the attempts to romanticize the past as a foundation of (...)

  • Sylvia Wynter’s New Science of the Word and the Autopoetics of the Flesh.Rafael Vizcaíno - 2022 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 14 (1):72-88.
    This essay proposes that the work of Sylvia Wynter, a canonical figure in Afro-Caribbean philosophy, demonstrates other ways of doing philosophy, a comparative philosophy carried out as a cross-cultural exercise. Sylvia Wynter has argued for a “New Science of the Word” by drawing from the contributions of Frantz Fanon (sociogeny), Aimé Césaire (poetic knowledge), and the field of cybernetics, among other sources. This essay aims to explain the framework and methodology of the New Science and the original transdisciplinary engagement that (...)

  • Dialogue as the negation of hegemony: An African perspective.Pascah Mungwini - 2015 - South African Journal of Philosophy 34 (4):395-407.
    As an enterprise centred in human experiences, philosophy must acknowledge its history and find its way from that history to define the future of humanity. Inter-philosophical dialogue is an attempt to metaphorically dialogue with that history with a view to creating better understanding across cultures. In this essay, I seek to examine the nature and foundations of inter-philosophical dialogue from an African standpoint. Not only is dialogue the defining element of philosophy, but it is also integral to what it means (...)

  • Knowledge, Power, and the Search for Epistemic Liberation in Africa.Dennis Masaka - 2021 - Social Epistemology 35 (3):258-269.
    In this paper, I show that the strong relations of knowledge, power and liberation are worth reassessing and clarifying in light of the indigenous people of Africa’s quest for epistemic liberation....
