About this Item

Title

  • Competing knowledges = Wissen im Widerstreit

Other Title

  • Wissen im Widerstreit

Summary

  • Whatever societies accept as "knowledge" is embedded in specific epistemological, political and economic power relations. How is knowledge produced and functionalized? What is the difference between knowledge and the sciences? Can there be science without universal truth claims? Questions like these, all of them highly relevant, are discussed in twelve essays from the perspective of Sociology, Law, Cultural Studies and the Humanities.
