“Hybrid corn was the invention of a method of inventing, a method of breeding superior corn for specific localities. It was not a single invention immediately adaptable everywhere.

How do we deal with an episode of epistemic colonialism invited by the to-be-colonized? Must we establish that the invitation of the Rockefeller Foundation program by the Mexican government does not represent an autonomous decision by every denizen of that government? Can we establish, somehow, that to indigenous groups within Mexico, the Mexican federal government […]

As long as the story of science, technology, and medicine is told with the language of colonialism, it should be written using the methodologies of colonial, anti-colonial, and post-colonial history; as long as the story of science, technology, and medicine is told with the language of management, bureaucracy, and control, it should be written using […]

The Green Revolution was first brought to Mexico and only later to India. Why is there such an imbalance in the number of scholarly treatments of the ecological, economic, and cultural ramifications of the Green Revolution in favor of India? This paper seeks to provide some small amount of ballast, and gratefully acknowledges and utilizes […]

Can this taxonomic scheme (techne, episteme, and technai) apply to the interactions between Western-mode agronomists and Oaxaca’s indigenous population? What does it mean that Marglin’s essay employs the attitude and technique of episteme in order to make these claims? “But what is culture? We are all accustomed to thinking of culture as a set of rules, largely tacit […]
“Another reason why choice sets contract is that many activities are indivisible and require a minimum scale to be feasible. The substitution of mass-produced articles for local craft products is conventionally seen as an enlargement of choice. And for many consumers this is exactly right: plastic buckets win out over clay pots in the market […]
From Stephen Marglin’s “Towards the Decolonization of the Mind”: What is the nature of choice for the indigenes of Oaxaca in the implementation of agricultural modernization? Are they left with the choice of retaining traditional agricultural techniques and philosophies? What choices did they make? What do their ‘revealed preferences’ (see Marglin) indicate about both agricultural […]
“However, under both criteria well-being may be said to improve if people opt for the new alternative. Either way, a sufficient condition for welfare improvement is that people vote with their feet or their pocketbooks or their ballots for the modern over the traditional. Under the intrinsic criterion, the choice of new alternatives is evidence […]

“English Baconianism suited men who aimed to govern. ‘For knowledge itself is power,’ Bacon had declared, a memorable slogan that was often repeated during the following centuries. For the scientific programme that he launched, knowledge meant not only power over nature, but also power over people — including aristocrats exploiting their workers, England ruling her […]
