Different discipline has different epistemologies.
What is knowledge? What is research? What’s good work? What is adequate? What is interesting? How are these judgments being made?
There are profound differences in epistemologies. Within a field, people often accept arguments which other field people do not accept. What’s good work is what you learn through “profesionalization”
In Science and Technology Studies. (STS), we often say: “it could have been otherwise.”
We must be refletive on epistemologies.
