On the collective subjects in epistemology: The marxist case and a problem for the african viewpoint
Graduate studies at Western
Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 88 (1):117-128 (2005)
|Abstract||The idea of a collective, but not necessarily universal epistemological subject is not only inherent in African tradition but also in the sciences and humanities as understood in the western tradition. In this paper I propose to delineate this collective subject by means of the construction of the Marxian concept of a theoretical representative of a social class . This allows for avoiding a trap that is necessarily faced by any collectivist viewpoint.|
