Jane Duran's insightful explication of the works of five political thinkers, apropos attention to their contemporary political milieus and to current global environments, shows an astute familiarity with existing scholarship. By placing them in richly-informed contexts of better-known political and philosophical thought, Duran persuasively demonstrates the significance of feminists in addressing today's compelling challenges. She admirably tackles thorny questions to advance the dialogue, especially whether there even is a female perspective on politics. Julie C. Van Camp, California State University, Long Beach, USA. About the Author.

Jane Duran (born 1944) is a Cuban poet. Duran was born to an American mother and a Spanish father, Gustavo Durán, who had fought with the Republican army in the Spanish Civil war. He fled Spain after Franco's victory but would never talk about his experiences. The themes of silences, loss and exile haunt much of her work. Duran was brought up in the United States and Chile, moving to England in 1966 after graduating from Cornell University. She now lives in London with her Algerian husband and their son.

Jane Duran's Worlds of Knowing begins to fill an enormous gap in the literature of feminist epistemology: a wide-ranging, cross-cultural primer on worldviews and epistemologies of various cultures and their appropriations by indigenous feminist movements in those cultures

Jane Duran's Worlds of Knowing begins to fill an enormous gap in the literature of feminist epistemology: a wide-ranging, cross-cultural primer on worldviews and epistemologies of various cultures and their appropriations by indigenous feminist movements in those cultures. It is the much needed epistemological counterpart to work on cross-cultural feminist social and political philosophy. This project is absolutely breath-taking in scope, yet a manageable read for anyone with some background in feminist theory, history, or anthropology.

Knowledge in Context: Naturalized Epistemology and Sociolinguistics. This book is an extended argument about what epistemologists are missing when they presume that a 'theory of knowledge' is nothing more than a 'model of the mind,' or when they presume to naturalize epistemology only by advertising to cognitive science. Drawing on recent work by such sociolinguists as Dell Hymes and Erving Goffman and epistemologists Hilary Kornblith and Alvin Goldman, Jane Duran.

Home Browse Books Book details, Toward a Feminist Epistemology. Recent work on feminist epistemology or theory of knowledge seems to come to us, somewhat oddly perhaps, from a number of disciplines. Toward a Feminist Epistemology.

This book is an extended argument about what epistemologists are missing when they presume that a 'theory of knowledge' is nothing more than a 'model of the mind,' or when they presume to naturalize epistemology only by advertising to cognitive science. Drawing on recent work by such sociolinguists as Dell Hymes and Erving Goffman and epistemologists Hilary Kornblith and Alvin Goldman, Jane Duran seeks to heighten awareness of relevant areas of the social sciences among those interested in contemporary theory of knowledge while, at the same time, providing social scientists with an understanding of what philosophers mean by matters epistemological.
