Republicanism and social epistemology. A critical assessment of Ghosh’s proposal

Contemporary literature on the republican revival is mainly produced from the standpoint of legal theory. The most common critical assessments depart from the defense of a more or less robust republican, liberal or communitarian conception of democracy. In this sense, there still exists an enormous theoretical gap for discussing republicanism from other conceptual points of view. Taking this gap into account, the paper will evaluate Ghosh’s republican perspective from a social-epistemological approach.
