Book description

Edited by an international team of leading scholars, The Routledge Handbook of Social Epistemology is the first major reference work devoted to this growing field. The Handbook?s 46 chapters, all appearing in print here for the first time, and written by philosophers and social theorists from around the world, are organized into eight main parts:

  • Historical Backgrounds
  • The Epistemology of Testimony
  • Disagreement, Diversity, and Relativism
  • Science and Social Epistemology
  • The Epistemology of Groups
  • Feminist Epistemology
  • The Epistemology of Democracy
  • Further Horizons for Social Epistemology

With lists of references after each chapter and a comprehensive index, this volume will prove to be the definitive guide to the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of social epistemology.
