Resisting Reality

Oxford University Press

If social facts are constituted by a kind of social consensus, then those whose beliefs conform to the consensus seem to have knowledge. But how, then, can ideology critique gain an epistemic grip? The chapter developes this puzzle and consider whether recent relativist strategies in philosophy of language provide resources to show how social beliefs can be true relative to a milieu, and yet allow genuine disagreement between milieus.

Keywords:   social knowledge, social structure, ideology critique, fashion, relativism. maker's knowledge, schemas, resources, William Sewell, ideology, feminism
