Boaventura de Sousa Santos and Paul Feyerabend about the proliferation of alternatives

Juan Carlos Aguirre-García ( Departamento de Filosofía, Universidad del Cauca (Popayán, Colombia) ORCID: 0000-0003-0938-2730


In this paper I review the thesis about the proliferation of alternatives by Boaventura de Sousa Santos, from some criticisms to the thesis of the proliferation of theories by Paul Feyerabend. I claim that, though not in explicit way, there is an affinity between them, therefore the weakness from the second one affects the first one. However, the point is to show how some emergent proposals, as the ecology of knowledges, could benefit from a full epistemological discussion, instead of insisting on its counter-epistemological nature.

Keywords: Santos, epistemology, Feyerabend, proliferation, reason.
