Epistemological Bias in the Physical & Social Sciences
This collection of papers emphasises the danger of making the West the ultimate point of reference and then trying to con-tinuously play ?catch up? with it. The book aims to uncover some of the biases latent in our terminology, methodologies,research tools and conceptual principles and proposes alternative ones marked by a greater degree of independence andneutrality; i.e. when Western scholarship says ?development psychology? why do Muslims hurry to use the same term?
