Local ecologies of knowledge

Local ecologies of knowledge

Expertise about biological and ecological processes is widely distributed but also contested between academic and non-academic stakeholders. This ERC project works with local communities and researchers in Brazil and Mexico in developing “philosophy of ethnobiology” as a transdisciplinary meeting ground for addressing foundational methodological issues in the negotiation of biological and ecological knowledge.

 As there has been almost no interaction between academic philosophy and ethnobiology, the project aims to develop a historically informed framework for approaching intercultural and transdisciplinary dialogue despite differences in producing, validating, and reasoning about knowledge.
