Scepticism, Authority and the Market

  • Russell Keat


This chapter explores some philosophical issues raised by debates about the desirability of protecting cultural practices from the effects of unregulated market forces. In particular, it considers the implications for these debates of the relationships between forms of social authority and epistemological theories (i.e., theories about whether, and in what ways, various kinds of knowledge-claims can be justified).1
