English abstract

The article examines the constitutive structure of social epistemology and argues that this is the brainchild of Margaret Elizabeth Egan, and that Jesse Hauk Shera then “re-conceptualized” this theory confusingly. Moreover, in this paper, are establish what ideas shape the genealogy of philosophy of librarianship in the twentieth century. Added to this, it determines that Shera’s ideas do not belong of this genealogical line, rather they are in a parallel line. Shera moved away from the original social epistemology of Egan, and he went to strange lands, which —contrary to the most basic and conventional theoretical thinking in librarianship— not commune with the preceding tradition. On the other hand, the text states that the Floridi’s philosophy of information supports librarianship tradition, its precepts and evolution.

El artículo examina la estructura constitutiva de la epistemología social y plantea que ésta es idea original de Margaret Elizabeth Egan, y que Jesse Hauk Shera luego la “re-conceptualizó” de forma confusa. Además, se establecen cuáles ideas constituyen la genealogía de la filosofía de la bibliotecología en el siglo XX. Aunado a esto, se estatuye que las ideas de Shera se encuentran apartadas de esta línea genealógica, en una línea paralela. Shera se alejó de la epistemología social original de Egan y la llevó a terrenos difusos, mismos que —contrario al pensamiento teórico bibliotecológico más básico y convencional— no comulgan con la tradición precedente. Por otro lado, en el texto se establece que la filosofía de la información de Floridi es compatible con la tradición bibliotecológica, sus preceptos y evolución.

O artigo examina a estrutura constitutiva da epistemologia social e argumenta que esta é a ideia de Margaret Elizabeth Egan, e que Jesse Hauk Shera depois "re-conceituou" confusamente. Além disso, neste trabalho, são estabelece o que são idéias moldar a genealogia da filosofia da biblioteconomia no século XX. Somado a isso, ele determina que as idéias de Shera não pertencem desta linha genealógica, mas eles estão em uma linha paralela. Shera afastou-se da epistemologia social original de Egan, e ele foi para terras estranhas, que —ao contrário do pensamento teórico mais básico e convencional em biblioteconomia— não comungar com a tradição anterior. Por outro lado, o texto afirma que a filosofia da informação da Floridi suporta tradição biblioteconomia, seus preceitos e evolução.
