Standpoint theory and the possibility of justice: A Lyotardian critique of the democratization of knowledge
Graduate studies at Western
Hypatia 22 (4):16-29 (2007)
|Abstract||: Grebowicz argues from the perspective of Jean-François Lyotard's critique of deliberative democracy that the project of democratizing knowledge may bring us closer to terror than to justice. The successful formulation of a critical standpoint requires that we figure the political as itself a contested site, and incorporate this into our theorizing about the role of dissent in the production of knowledges. This essay contrasts Lyotard's notion of the differend with Chantal Mouffe's agonistic model|
