Description: The question of role knowledge and science play with regard to a more socially just and sustainable society is highly topical both in media ethics and in neighboring disciplines. Presently there are discussions on why the current structures of knowledge generation and communication are violent in themselves and how transformation processes can be successful. While both practical and intercultural philosophy offer approaches to questioning and deconstructing universalisms, media ethics provides an understanding of how master narratives shape societal perceptions of knowledge and science. How do even these approaches exert epistemic violence and thereby obstruct the vision of greater participation and socio-ecological justice? How does an inclusive understanding of knowledge relate to the value of authenticity? Can the ethics of authenticity help to overcome epistemic injustice?
