About Geos


Global Epistemologies and Ontologies (GEOS) is a research project of the Knowledge, Technology, and Innovation (KTI) Group of Wageningen University. Our work brings together philosophical and empirical research on global negotiations of knowledge and social-environmental challenges. We aim to understand heterogeneous knowledge about socio-environmental systems by equally heterogeneous actors from Indigenous farmers to laboratory scientists.

Bringing together approaches from ethnobiology and political ecology to philosophy of science and social epistemology, we aim to contribute to critical reflexivity in debates about global challenges such as biodiversity, food production, and public health. Furthermore, we aim to reimagine philosophy as action research that contributes to interventions into social-environmental processes through dialogue with both empirical science and local communities about epistemological and ontological questions.
