Social Epistimology

Social epistemology (wikipedia) is a broad set of approaches to the study of knowledge, all of which construe human knowledge as a collective achievement. Social epistemologists may be found working in many of the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences, most commonly in philosophy and sociology. In addition to marking a distinct movement in traditional, analytic epistemology, social epistemology is associated with the interdisciplinary field of Science and Technology Studies (STS)

Daniel Bird (Dorset Humanists) attended a Stirling University conference on Social Epistimology. I wonder what he got out of it?

According to Plato, knowledge is a subset of that which is both true and believed
