Abstract

In this paper we discuss the eminently ideological and political character of feminist epistemologies. We draw attention to their weakness in terms of their lack of demarcation of a particular gender philosophy, of genuine scientific theories and methods activating each of the epistemic paradigms. All this hinders the construction of an authentic gender philosophy and therefore, a gender theory able to match the criteria demanded by traditional scientific epistemologies.

Key words: Epistemology, feminist epistemology, gender philosophy, gender theory, scientific method.
