The modern hope of attaining purely rational and objective knowledge has faltered, to the joy of some and worry of others.

Qu'est-ce que l'épistémologie et quelle est son utilité en science politique? La science politique peut-elle nous expliquer le comment et les raisons qui ont causé un événement?

Do the objects that we perceive though our senses exist autonomously, independent of the mind that perceives them? Three and a half centuries have gone by without a universally acceptable solution. Jean-René Vernes shows that this failure results from the fundamental error in classical thinking, which identifies reason with determinant reason alone... more...
