Negotiating and Overturning the Othering of Indigenous Epistemologies
Main Article Content
This book persuasively shows that modern philosophical ways of knowing are not the only valid forms of knowledge that exist. Angela Roothaan argues for a critical reappraisal of indigenous ways of knowing and a need to overturn the politics of epistemology that sustain the modern system of knowledge with regard to its othering of indigenous outlooks of nature. According to Roothaan, this can be achieved by broadening our epistemological and moral vistas beyond the thin modern scientific view that circumscribes valid knowledge merely to the empirical aspects of reality. Such broadening will make an intercultural environmental dialogue possible.
