Beschreibung

Ecological thinking is the regulative principle for a theory of knowledge informed by feminism, multiculturalism, and other post-colonial theories. Drawing on ecological theory and naturalized epistemology, it interrogates the instrumental rationality and exploitation of people and places that western epistemologies of mastery legitimate, to generate a politics of knowledge sensitive to human and situational diversity.

Pressestimmen

"Professor Code provides a rich and sensitive epistemology, an erudite yet eminently readable account of how we know and ought to behave. Her insights, arguments, and examples break new ground in helping us understand the dangers of autonomy, the role of advocacy, and the wisdom of ecological thinking. Anyone in ethics, epistemology, or feminist philosophy must read her book."--Kristin Shrader-Frechette, University of Notre Dame
"This new, major work by Lorraine Code develops the idea of 'ecological thinking' as an alternative, and antidote, to epistemic monolingualism. Code persuasively shows how Western epistemology is analogous to enforced single-crop agriculture that chokes native species and destroys variety. By combining epistemology with an ecological approach, Code brilliantly creates a new model for epistemic pluralism." --Linda Mart n Alcoff, Syracuse University
"Philosophical reflections on knowledge typically look at highly idealized situations, where generic, isolated knowers can narrowly focus inquiry within well-defined boundaries. Lorraine Code returns epistemology to the messier circumstances in which knowledge claims are typically made and contested. When natural complexity cannot be easily circumscribed, power and social hierarchy affect knowers' credibility or access, and entrenched social imaginaries constrain the envisioned possibilities, different models of knowledge and justification are called for. Code's call for ecological thinking is a challenging new conception of what it would mean to naturalize epistemology."--Joseph Rouse, Wesleyan University
"Ecological Thinking provides a powerful and persuasive epistemological model for responsible knowing which exemplifies the complex intersections between knowledge, subjectivity, politics, ethics, science, citizenship, and agency. Code demonstrates that historically, demographically, and geographically located analyses of knowledge production and distribution will generate m
