What are the synergies and tensions between matauranga Maori and western science? This course delves into aspects of current and historical debates around that relationship. Themes include past struggles between Maori and western concepts, ‘knowledge’ and its situatedness within both matauranga Maori and western science, the theoretical consequences of taking a position, the philosophical similarities between the two and possible divergences - including in the context of various specialisations of both western science and matauranga Maori - and the uptake of matauranga Maori by scientific policy and academic literature.
