Multiplicity, criticism and knowing what to do next: Way-finding in a transmodern world. Response to Meera Nanda's prophets facing backwards

Social Epistemology 19 (1):19 – 32 (2005)
Abstract
The paper addresses the question of whether, as Nanda claims, treating all knowledge traditions including science as local, denies the possibility of criticism. It accepts the necessity for criticism but denies that science can be the sole arbiter of truth and argues that we have to live with holding differing knowledges in tension with one another.
