Epistemology

Most popular at the top

  • Epistemic Entitlementby Hannes Ole Matthiessen

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    What entitles you to claims about your perceivable environment? Matthiessen suggests that it is neither your experience, nor the reliability of your cognitive processes, but rather your being in the right kind of perceptual situation. more...

  • Self and Other: Exploring Subjectivity, Empathy, and Shameby Dan Zahavi

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Can you be a self on your own or only together with others? Is selfhood a built-in feature of experience or rather socially constructed? How do we at all come to understand others? Does empathy amount to and allow for a distinct experiential acquaintance with others, and if so, what does that tell us about the nature of selfhood and social cognition?... more...

  • Sometimes Always True: Undogmatic Pluralism in Politics, Metaphysics, and Epistemologyby Jeremy Barris

    Fordham University Press 2014; US$ 41.99

    Sometimes Always True aims to resolve three connected problems. First, we need an undogmatic pluralist standpoint in political theory, metaphysics, and epistemology. But genuine pluralism suffers from the contradiction that making room for fundamental differences in outlook means making room for outlooks that exclude pluralism. Second, philosophy involves... more...

  • A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledgeby George Berkeley

    ReadHowYouWant 2009; US$ 4.99

    “A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge” is a book that largely seeks to counter the claims made by his contemporary philosophers about the nature of human perception. The author has asserted that there is an outer world that largely consists of ideas and not of physical forms. He goes on to conclude that this world owes... more...

  • Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonousby George Berkeley

    ReadHowYouWant 2009; US$ 4.99

    An extension of Berkley’s ideas, the work presents his philosophy in the form of dialogues. The author has presented arguments to prove the existence of god and that the material world consists completely of ideas and not physical objects. He reiterates that there is a diety that maintains order and arrangement in the world around us. more...

  • Natur, Technik, Geistby Gregor Schiemann

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 196.00

    We still follow the definitions of Nature already laid down by Aristotle and Descartes who saw Nature as being delineated from the non-natural (e.g. culture, technology). Schiemann defends the continuing validity of these traditional ways of understanding, but argues that that they prove to be valid only within limited contexts. Depending on the particular... more...

  • Epistemology and the Socialby Evandro Agazzi; Javier Echeverria; Amparo Gomez Rodriguez

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 64.40

    Epistemology had to come to terms with “the social” on two different occasions. The first was represented by the dispute about the epistemological status of the “social” sciences, and in this case the already well established epistemology of the natural sciences seemed to have the right to dictate the conditions for a discipline... more...

  • The Self-Correcting Enterpriseby P. Michael Wolf; Norris Mark Lance

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 84.00

    This volume presents ten new essays on the work of Wilfrid Sellars and its implications for contemporary philosophy. Contributors run the gamut from established voices in the Sellarsian literature to the newest voices in the field. It addresses topics ranging from cognitive science and philosophy of mind to epistemology and the philosophy of language.... more...

  • On Truth and Untruthby Friedrich Nietzsche

    HarperCollins 2010; US$ 8.99

    ?We continue to live within the intellectual shadow cast by Nietzsche.? ? New York Times Book Review Best known for his seminal works on religion, morality, existentialism, and contemporary culture, such as The Birth of Tragedy and Thus Spoke Zarathustra , Nietzsche focuses his penetrating insight on assessing the nature of truth in this concise... more...

  • On Truthby Harry G. Frankfurt

    Random House 2010; US$ 13.54

    Whatever benefits and rewards it may sometimes be possible to attain by bullshitting, by dissembling, or by sheer mendacity, societies cannot afford to tolerate anyone or anything that fosters a slovenly indifference to the distinction between true and false. In a world of spin, rhetoric, blagging and bullshitting, a basic level of scepticism... more...
