Samenvatting

We investigate howepistemic injusticecan manifest itself in mathematical practices.We do this as both a social epistemological and virtue-theoretic investigation of math-ematical practices. We delineate the concept both positively—we show that a certaintype of folk theorem can be a source of epistemic injustice in mathematics—andnegatively by exploring cases where the obstacles to participation in a mathematicalpractice do not amount to epistemic injustice. Having explored what epistemic injus-tice in mathematics can amount to, we use the concept to highlight a potential dangerof intellectual enculturation.
