Abstract

In this paper, I identify two inter-related varieties of epistemic injustice ubiquitous in science. Epistemic severing is the act of cutting off some epistemic communities from the narrative of scientific knowledge production. Epistemic trademarking is the ensuing process of trademarking relevant portions of scientific knowledge as the exclusive product of one epistemic community over others. I elucidate the nature of these two notions with examples from the history of physics and contemporary biopiracy.
