About the Author

Boaventura de Sousa Santos is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Coimbra (Portugal), Distinguished Legal Scholar at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the author and editor of dozens of books, which include If God Were a Human Rights Activist and Epistemologies of the South: Justice against Epistemicide.


"The result of many years of work, this book was written towards the possibility of what I would call 'una epistemologia solidaria, ' an epistemology in solidarity with those who want to change the world as it is hegemonically known. Boaventura de Sousa Santos's political analysis in The End of the Cognitive Empire offers an alternative that steers political analysis away from usual alternatives."--Marisol de la Cadena
