About this product
- DescriptionA Defense of Igrance develops new ideas in feminist epistemology by exploring diverse and sometimes positive roles for igrance. Cynthia Townley argues that epistemic values cant simply be reduced to the value of increasing kwledge and that igrance is t merely inescapable for epistemic agents, but, rather, is valuable. Townley shows that igrance-friendly epistemology offers a better descriptive and rmative account of human epistemic practices. This interpretation challenges the traditional assumption that increasing kwledge is the definitive epistemic goal. The book makes a major contribution to revisionary epistemology and to the expanding fields of social epistemology and feminist epistemology. All social scientists stand to benefit from Townley's analysis, most of all those interested in kwledge and in feminist scholarship.
