Epistemologies of the South: Justice against Epistemicide

Boaventura De Sousa Santos


Today, people are becoming more aware of the multiple dimensions of injustice whether social, political, cultural, sexual, ethnic, religious, historical, or ecological. Rarely acknowledged is cognitive injustice, the failure to recognize the different ways of knowing by which people across the globe provide meaning to their existence. This book shows why cognitive injustice underlies all other dimensions; global social justice is not possible without global cognitive justice.
