This claim was specifically generated by Sandra Harding and as such, "Starting off research from women's lives will generate less partial and distorted accounts not only of women's lives but also of men's lives and of the whole social order. Asante and Davis’s (1989) study of interracial encounters in the workplace found that because of different cultural perspectives, approaching organizational interactions with others with different beliefs, assumptions, and meanings often leads to miscommunication. Thus, it was presented by different authors (and sometimes within a single essay) as a philosophy of both natural and social sciences, an epistemology, a methodology (a prescriptive “method of research,” as several of its theorists phrased it), and a political strategy. Nakata describes that these three principles allow him to forge a critical standpoint from the cultural interface and enable to create better arguments in relation to his position within epistemologies ad with other groups of ‘knowers’. Generally, standpoint theory gives insight into specific circumstances only available to the members of a certain collective standpoint. "[14], Paul Adler and John Jermier suggest that management scholars should be aware of their standpoints. When Harding and Wood conceived Standpoint theory they did not understand, when they defined it as a feminist view, that there are different cultures existing in the same social group. Standpoint theory challenged this assumption. Connections made, or at least attempted, where none existed before, the straining to encompass in one’s glance at the varied world the common thread, the unifying theme through immense diversity” (1983, 5). This is a matter of respect as the researcher is expected to declare who they are and on what basis they write on. Why do all the pretty things always run away from me? Philosophy is unfortunately not my forte. For her, a standpoint does not mark out a clearly defined territory such as “women” within which members have automatic privilege but is a rather a posture of epistemic engagement. Where one is privileged, the expectation is roughly that one is to “shut up and listen,” and where one is Theoretically oppressed, one’s views can be considered authoritative, so long as they’re “authentic,” which roughly means in alignment with how Theory describes the experience of oppression for that identity group.

Navarro. The rough concept here is that the “slave” (oppressed, marginalized, or subordinated) class possesses a kind of double understanding of society because the “master” class experiences life as a master in a masters’ world while the “slave” class experiences it as a slave in a masters’ world, thus deriving direct insight about both social positions (see also, double consciousness, kaleidoscopic consciousness, multiple consciousnesses, and master’s tools). Standpoint theory emerged in the 1970s and 1980s as a feminist critical theory about relations between the production of knowledge and practices of power. So, Harding sees traditional objectivity as denying the fact (which I won’t dispute) that “a culture’s best beliefs—what it calls knowledge—are socially situated” (Harding 145). Responding to the claim that the situated knowledge thesis reifies essentialism, Wylie thus argues that it is "an open (empirical) question whether such structures obtain in a given context, what form they take, and how they are internalized or embodied by individuals". Standpoint theory is a theory found in some academic disciplines which is used for analyzing inter-subjective discourses. Check out using a credit card or bank account with. One must also be politically engaged, which means having adopted the right critical methods and a critical consciousness (or, wokeness). For others, however, that it should be feminists who succeed at such a project has been disquieting. 8 (2016): 17-23. At the same time, feminists working in otherdisciplines such as the social sciences were documenting the sexism andandrocentrism in their fields. It assumes that ‘women’ are some sort of privileged group that can represent ‘, 2. By Sandra Harding Feminist objectivity means quite simply situated knowledges. Standpoint theory seeks to develop a particular feminist epistemology, that values the experiences of women and minorities as a source for knowledge.. Thus feminist standpoint theory revives, improves, and disseminates an important Marxian project and does so at an otherwise inauspicious moment for such an achievement. Immediately after she adds that, “It is clear, however, that not all social values and interests have the same bad effects upon the results of research. All Rights Reserved.

The second comprises a pair of arguments which oppose Harding based on i) her definition of terms and ii) epistemic accessibility. Source: Collins, Patricia Hill. Braithwaite (Eds. [2] Standpoint theory gives voice to the marginalized groups by allowing them to challenge the status quo as the outsider within.
