Contemporary Social Movements and the Scientific Administration of Society

The article addresses the issue of the scientification of emancipatory social movements in capitalist modernity. Contemporary social science is used as a tool for state intervention, and we can detect parallels between the hierarchical administration of society “from above” and the corresponding scientific “objectivity”. Therefore, the connection between emancipatory movements and science shouldn’t be taken as self-evident, as it is often the expression of authoritarian policies. In order to understand these movements, other knowledge concepts such as metis and praxis have also been considered. The author emphasizes the epistemologies of the South as a key attribute of global resistances against the neoliberal order.
