An Epistemological Reversal
What does disability teach us? This book is a response to this question. Very specifically, it demonstrates how socially manifested themes of education, inclusion, language and politics (of policies) are woven around the central motif of centring– a philosophy that guides us to construction of knowledge about the world and about the lives lived in this world. Centring disability demands reconfiguring the centre of knowledge generation by relocating disability from its present peripheral position to the centre; in short, attempting an ‘ontological reframing’ by considering disability as an epistemological source. At the end, the book opens a window to a world that promises social transformation through inclusion.
