Truth depends in some sense on reality. But it is a rather delicate matter to spell this intuition out in a plausible and precise way. According to the theory of truth-making this intuition implies that either every truth or at least every truth of a certain class of truths has a so-called truth-maker, an entity whose existence accounts for truth.... more...

In recent years many influential philosophers have advocated that philosophy is an a priori science.

Dieser Band führt umfassend in die Probleme der Erkenntnistheorie ein. Dabei stehen zwei Fragen im Mittelpunkt: 1. Was können wir wissen? 2. Was ist Wissen? Die erste Frage stellt sich in Anbetracht der Herausforderung durch den Skeptiker, der uns (so gut wie) alles Wissen abspricht.

From the now iconic Barack Obama 'Hope' poster of the 2008 presidential campaign to the pit-head 'Camp Hope' of the families of the trapped Chilean miners, the language of hope can be hugely powerful as it draws on resources that are uniquely human and universal. We are beings who hope. But what does that say about us? What is hope and what role does... more...

Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged.
