(Original title: Stanovisko ako epistemologická/metodologická stratégia?)
Filozofia, 60 (2005), 6, 399-411.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The paper deals with the standpoint as the epistemological and methodological strategy in the process of the production of knowledge. The author highlights some issues in contemporary debates on the feminist epistemologies (standpoint theories), she focuses on the nature, source, and functions of the standpoint – in the context of the conception of a situated knowledge. Attention is paid also to the controversies contained in the notion of „standpoint“ and to the attempts to create (within the framework of „the second wave of standpoint theories“) a conception with a modified, „softer“ standpoint, or to build up a new epistemological conception – an epistemology of situated knowledge without any epistemic privileged standpoint.
