Abstract

I explore the conceptual connections between Wittgenstein's On Certainty and the work of three contemporary feminist epistemologists: standpoint theorist Sandra Harding and feminist empiricists Helen Longino and Lynn Hankinson Nelson. My inquiry reveals both surprising similarities and important differences between Wittgensteinian and feminist epistemologies. Exploring these similarities and differences clarifies Wittgenstein's epistemology and reveals ways feminist epistemologists have developed themes from On Certainty. On Certainty anticipates three important pillars of feminist epistemology: criticism, context, and community.
