Congregations as the Center of Knowing: Shifting from the Individual to the Communal in Knowledge Formation.
Stahl, Wanda J.
Religious Education, v92 n3 p298-314 Sum 1997
Suggests an alternative to the traditional epistemological construction that defines the individual as the center of knowledge formation. Criticizes this approach for helping to perpetuate an individualistic culture often at odds with religious teachings. Outlines recent epistemologies, mostly offered by feminists, that challenge these theories. (MJP)
