From the PublisherFrom the reviews:
What do we mean by "epistemological difference?" This timely and useful volume exposes and explores the theoretical issues raised by the encounter of cultures and social experiences that differently shape cognitive pursuits and standards of evaluation. It is essential reading for thinkers about knowledge, its cultivation, and its communication in our 21st century interconnected world.
Helen E. Longino Clarence Irving Lewis Professor in Philosophy, Stanford University, USA
“The central focus in this attractive book … as a volume in Springer’s Contemporary Philosophies and Theories in Education series, is on a concept that has gained substantial popularity in recent years―as well as some notoriety, as a few of the writings here illustrate. … an eminently readable and engaging book, a timely volume that will be of great interest and benefit not only to philosophers and theorists in education, but also to graduate students, and to educators working in multicultural environments.” (Kai Horsthemke, Science & Education, June, 2012)
