Omtale: How to Know
Some key aspects of contemporary epistemology deserve to be challenged, and How to Know does just that. This book argues that several long-standing presumptions at the heart of the standard analytic conception of knowledge are false, and defends an alternative, a practicalist conception of knowledge. * Presents a philosophically original conception of knowledge, at odds with some central tenets of analytic epistemology * Offers a dissolution of epistemology s infamous Gettier problem explaining why the supposed problem was never really a problem in the first place. * Defends an unorthodox conception of the relationship between knowledge-that and knowledge-how, understanding knowledge-that as a kind of knowledge-how.
