Abstract

The question of epistemic injustice arose in Latin America before it did in North America. Two hundred years ago, an intense philosophical debate in Cuba addressed the very issue. Armando Hart, who led Cuba’s literacy campaign in 1961–2, unmatched in the world, says no one who disregards the Cuban Philosophical Polemic, 1838–40, understands the Cuban Revolution in the twentieth century (2006: 60). It has to do with epistemic freedom.
