  • Many postmodern theorists and some feminists and have argued that knowledge is always partial, situated, and embodied. Such an epistemology makes universal Truth as an impossibility since only a relational truth between knower and known is possible. Postmodern epistemologies also make claims for social justice problematic (if not impossible) since there can be no standard upon which to base such claims Steven Best and Doug Kellner. Postmodern Theory: Critical Interrogations, (New York: The Guilford Press, 1991); Steven Best and Doug Kellner. The Postmodern Turn, (New York: The Guilford Press, 1997); Mike Featherstone and Scott Lash. Spaces of Culture: City, Nation, World, (Thousand Oaks, CA.: Sage 1999); Sandra Harding. Whose Science? Whose Knowledge?: Thinking from Women’s Lives, (Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1991); Kathleen Lennon and Margaret Whitford. Knowing the Difference: Feminist Perspectives in Epistemology, (New York: Routledge, 1994). An important intervention – about the situated-ness of knowledge – but, as a number of critics have pointed out, such a critique is not tied to any ethical ground from which to launch a claim for social justice.
