Epistemology. Theory of knowledge

Most popular at the top

  • Knowledge and Social Structureby Peter Hamilton

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    The primary concern of this study is to present, elucidate and analyse the developments which have characterized the sociology of knowledge, and which have set for it the outlines of its major problematics. Peter Hamilton examines the most distinctive approaches to the determinate relationship between knowledge and social structure. He considers the... more...

  • Knowledge and Politicsby Volker Meja; Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    Karl Mannheim?s Ideology and Utopia has been a profoundly provocative book. The debate about politics and social knowledge that was spawned by its original publication in 1929 attracted the most promising younger scholars, some of whom shaped the thought of several generations. The book became a focus for a debate on the methodological and epistemological... more...

  • Interests and the Growth of Knowledgeby Barry Barnes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    Intriguingly different in approach from conventional works in the same area of inquiry, this study deals with the central problems and concerns of the sociology of knowledge as it has traditionally been conceived of. In other words, it is concerned with the relationship of knowledge, social interests and social structure, and with the various attempts... more...

  • The Rational and the Socialby James Robert Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    To paraphrase Marx, sociologists have only interpreted science; the point is to improve it. The Rational and the Social attempts both. It begins by sketching recent sociological approaches to science, notably the strong programme ? Bloor?s ?science of science? and Barnes?s ?finitism? ? and that of the ?anthropologists in the lab?, Collins and Latour... more...

  • Synaesthesia and the Ancient Sensesby Shane Butler; Alex Purves

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged. 'Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses' presents a radical reappraisal of antiquity's textures, flavours, and aromas,... more...

  • Wissen ist keine Gluckssacheby Wilfried H. Lindenzweig

    Wiley 2014; US$ 21.95

    Warum haben Medikamente Nebenwirkungen? Wie gefährlich ist Strahlung? Wieso können wir mit einer wertlosen Plastikkarte Dinge bezahlen? Wie könnten Außerirdische aussehen? Diesen und vielen weiteren Fragen widmet sich Wilfried Lindenzweig aus Sicht des Naturwissenschaftlers. more...

  • Self-Consciousness and the Critique of the Subjectby Simon Lumsden

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 44.99

    Poststructuralists hold Hegel responsible for giving rise to many of modern philosophy?s problematic concepts—the authority of reason, self-consciousness, the knowing subject. Yet, according to Simon Lumsden, this animosity is rooted in a fundamental misunderstanding of Hegel?s thought, and resolving this tension can not only heal the rift between... more...

  • Education, Culture and Epistemological Diversityby Claudia W. Ruitenberg; D.C. Phillips

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    In the recent educational research literature, it has been asserted that ethnic or cultural groups have their own distinctive epistemologies, and that these have been given short shrift by the dominant social group. Educational research, then, is pursued within a framework that embodies assumptions about knowledge and knowledge production that reflect... more...
