Epistemic Universalism and the Shortcomings of Curricular Multicultural Science Education

Identifies both epistemic and political shortcomings in the portrayal of science found in curricular multicultural science education. This approach denies the unique characteristics of Western science as it ignores the particular strengths of other systems of thought and has the unexpected political effect of reaffirming scientism. Discusses a pedagogical alternative. (Contains 43 references.) (Author/WRM)
