De la monoculture de la Raison à l’écologie des Savoirs – Boaventura de Sousa Santos et la lutte contre l’épistémicide

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
This paper proposes to reconstruct Boaventura de Sousa Santos' conception of "epistemologies of the south" both (a) as a critical theory aiming at denouncing the impoverishment of the epistemic field entailed by the normative imposition of a certain model of knowledge (what we call "the monoculture of reason"), and (b) as a long-term political project of a harmonic coexistence of different epistemologies ("an ecology of knowledges").
