The need for an epistemology that transcends the boundaries and conflicts of epistemologies of the North, South, East and West has been highlighted in the work of de Sousa Santos (2014) and Inoue (2012, 2014). De Santos has focused on justice against epistemicide in explaining how the epistemologies of indigenous knowledges have been ‘killed’ off through the influence of Western Epistemology and the economic rationality of globalization. Inoue has argued for the inclusion of insights from East Asian Epistemology into Western Epistemology. An educational epistemology is generated from the doctoral theses of educators who have asked, researched and answered their questions, ‘How do I improve what I am doing in my professional practice?’ within a wide range of international contexts. In my own context I examine my education as a global citizen in Living Theory research with an alternative globalization.
