There is no such thing as knowledge


So sayeth Mike Hales

1 Because


It's hard to pitch and sustain this kind of perspective, and I can't easily point to other places where it's up front in the same way. Culture is so saturated with idealist perceptions of 'knowledge' as 'a body' or as accumulatable 'stuff'.

A historical, materialist framing - centred on practices of people-in-culture - is difficult to arrive at in the face of such hegemonic stuff

2 Epistemic status

Agreement level
Concentrate and ask again

I'm not really sure what Mike meant by this, and Mike himself doesn't seem to have a clear description.. But it's interesting and provocative and I Trust Situated Knowing from Mike. I'd guess that Mike's gist is around knowledge being a relationship rather than an abstract thing.
