Author #1


The author highlights how the World Social Forum (WSF), the annual meeting held by members of the anti-globalization or alter-globalization movement, has unexpected consequences for epistemology. He considers the possibilities opened by the emergence of the social forum process for the reconstruction of the structures of knowledge. By structures of knowledge, he means following the disciplinary organization and hegemonic approaches since the late nineteenth century in the social sciences.
