Title Common need for classical epistemological foundations: against a feminist alternative
Date 1994
Description The difficulties of justifying a recipe for scientific inquiry that calls for sensory experience and logic as sole ingredients can hardly be overestimated. Resolving the riddles of induction, steadily mounting against empiricism since Hume, has come to seem like an exercise in making bricks without straw. To be forgiven the debt of solving these riddles, whether by feminists or others, would come as a great relief. But such relief, I shall argue, can come only at the very high price of removing any capacity to evaluate inductive inference patterns. And if traditional Philosophy; cannot tolerate this loss, feminism should tolerate it even less.
