Description
About The Book

As a venture in the emerging field of comparative feminist philosophy, this work goes against the current trend of considering 'caring' and 'knowing' as independent of each other. It argues for what can be called a care-based epistemology modelled on the now-familiar care ethics. Using critical insights from the Mahabharata, the book proposes that knowing and caring can be fruitfully theorized 'together', while keeping the argument firmly rooted in the concept of virtue. What emerges is a feminist virtue epistemology that uses the methods of creative comparative philosophy to come up with a concept of 'relational humility' as the fulcrum of a new theory of knowing.

On the one hand, the epistemic and ethical paradigms given in the Mahabharata are interrogated though the political lens of contemporary feminist theory. On the other, the scope of traditional care ethics and virtue epistemology is broadened through a dialogue with an epic's narrative meditations on living well and knowing well in a very different context. Such a cross-cultural exploration gives us a robust conception of a 'good knower' who is both an ethical agent as well as ready to make interventions in various forms of epistemic injustices.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
