Social epistemology can be done descriptively or normatively. It is part of the descriptive project, for instance, to clarify whether a social isolate (like Robinson Crusoe) could have knowledge. It is central to the normative project to define how groups should be organised for them to produce.Groups engage in epistemic activity all the time--whether it be the active collective inquiry of scientific research groups or crime detection units, or the evidential deliberations of tribunals and juries, or the informational efforts of the voting population in general--and yet in philosophy there is still relatively little epistemology of groups to help explore these epistemic practices and.
