Social Sciences and Epistemology

Epistemology is a branch of philosophy of social science, an area of study with a substantial amount of literature available. Epistemology is concerned with the study of knowledge, with knowledge traditionally defined as justified true belief. Social epistemology refers to a set of approaches to the study of knowledge that interprets human knowledge as a collective achievement. Another way of characterizing social epistemology is as the study of the social dimensions of knowledge. Social epistemologists may be found working in many of the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences, most commonly in philosophy and sociology. In addition to mark a distinct movement in traditional, analytical epistemology, social epistemology is associated with the interdisciplinary field of Science and Technology Studies.
