Abstract:Modern universities have been at the source and played a key role in the expansion of Western Knowledge. The way the university has been linked to the rise of capitalism, colonialism and patriarchy contributed to destroying ways of knowing that do not fit European interests. This caused immense cognitive injustice. Can the universities be a site to redress such a past and contribute to a future of greater cognitive justice, conceived of as a crucial dimension of social global justice? My answer is a conditional yes. This condition requires an epistemic transition towards what I have been calling the Epistemologies of The South.
