Feminist Epistemology and Philosophy of Science

The Feminist Philosophy Collection
Power in Knowledge
As part of Springer's series on feminist philosophy, Feminist Epistemology and Philosophy of Science: Power in Knowledge collects exciting new works that address today's key challenges for a feminist approach to knowledge and scientific practice. With the relative dearth of collected volumes on the topic in the last decade, this volume will be of interest to both students and scholars of feminist epistemology and philosophy of science. It offers a mix of new contributions from well-established feminist scholars and the next generation of feminist epistemologists.

Having enjoyed more than twenty years of development, feminist epistemology and philosophy of science are now thriving fields of inquiry, offering current scholars a rich tradition from which to draw. In addition to a recognition of the power of knowledge itself and its effects on women's lives, a central feature of feminist epistemology and philosophy of science has been the attention they draw to the role of power dynamics within knowledge-seeking practices and the implications of these dynamics for our understandings of knowledge, science, and epistemology.
Feminist Epistemology and Philosophy of Science: Power in Knowledge collects new works that address today's key challenges for a power-sensitive feminist approach to questions of knowledge and scientific practice. The essays build upon established work in feminist epistemology and philosophy of science, offering new developments in the fields, and representing the broad array of the feminist work now being done and the many ways in which feminists incorporate power dynamics into their analyses.
