Positionality and thought: On the gendered foundations of thought, culture, and development
My aims in this chapter are both critical and substantive. I argue that gender in intersection with other social formations configures cultures and societies, and that epistemic norms (norms defining what constitutes knowledge) are developed in this gendered societal matrix and must therefore be the object of critique. I then explore the substantive implications of this argument. My discussion focuses specifically on deductive reasoning and its development, but the import of these remarks extends beyond this particular domain.
