In the post-positivist era in which Cartesian epistemology must be overcome we require a normative criterion of truth. Without it rationality of our beliefs and justifiability of our political acts are in question. This study seeks an epistemological criterion of truth that is attentive to the sociopolitical conditions that determine meaning.
ALIREZA SHOMALI is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Wheaton College, Massachusetts. He studied political theory at Syracuse University and was a Post Doctoral Fellow at Harvard University.
