about

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.
