SITUATED KNOWLEDGE

the embedded knowledge that is affected by the history, language and values of the person knowing it. The term arises from social constructionist and radical feminism where the view of these concepts is emphasised that universal knowledge is impossible.

SITUATED KNOWLEDGE: "In situated knowledge it is implied that social, cultural and historical factors will constrain the process of knowledge construction."
