Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


This introductory chapter lays down the philosophy behind the publishing of this collection. All essays therein focus on an epistemological approach to social transgressions, by exploring the current practical, moral, and political problems that can undermine social, political, and economic equality among all human beings. Wittgenstein's philosophy is reinterpreted by identifying the perspectives of the disenfranchised, in having their voices distorted or silenced by even the most discursive of practices among the privileged.
