Fuller, Steve. 2011. “Social Epistemology Revisited: An Interview with Steve Fuller”, interview by Elisabeth Simbürger. Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective, 1 (1) November.
Please refer to: “Science, Ideology and Knowledge: A Reply to ‘Social Epistemology Revisted'”, Gregory Sandstrom.
Seeking a platform for his research program ‘Social Epistemology’, in 1987 Steve Fuller founded the Taylor & Francis journal Social Epistemology. This was followed by the publication of his first book under the same name in 1988 (Indiana University Press). In 2012 Social Epistemology will celebrate its 25th anniversary. In this interview Steve Fuller reviews his research paradigm in the light of the changes over the last two decades and elaborates on themes such as the visual turn, postcolonialism, a pedagogy of social epistemology and upon being a prophet or a priest within his own research program. The interview was carried out by Elisabeth Simbuerger at the Universidad Diego Portales, Santiago de Chile during Steve Fuller’s academic visit to Chile in June 2011.
