Alternative imaginations: Examining complementarities across knowledge systems

Abstract

The science-centric knowledge derived from narrow criteria and vetted by limited number of experts inadvertently excludes wider participation of knowledge forms. The adjective alternative, associated with non-western knowledge is often used synonymously with irrational. We argue that alternative knowledge systems have a rationale of their own and are intricately woven into cultural, social and ecological fabric of society.
