Boaventura de Sousa santos – Why Epistemologies of the South?

Advanced seminar, in Portuguese. University of Coimbra School of Economics, 09.03.2012.

Boaventura de Sousa Santos takes as his starting point the idea that social experience throughout the world is much wider and more varied than western scientific or philosophical tradition understands or considers important. Rejecting the abyssal lines defined by western modernity, he proposes an exploration of the alternatives existing within the range of concrete possibilities.
