Knowledge as a social kind

Leandro De Brasi

Abstract


This paper motivates an account of knowledge as a social kind, following a cue by Edward Craig, which captures two major insights behind social and feminist epistemologies, in particular our epistemic interdependence concerning knowledge and the role of social regulative practices in understanding knowledge.

Keywords: epistemic anti-individualism, regulative epistemology, practical explication, testimony.
