“An epistemic methodology that sees the pursuit of knowledge as entirely congruent with the search for power is a great deal more cunning than wise. It can needlessly undermine the value of knowledge in satisfying curiosity and interest; it significantly weakens one of the profound characteristics of human beings.”
– Amartya Sen
Public and participative discussion on Amartya Sen’s celebrated essay collection, The Argumentative Indian (2005).
