Abstract

What is epistemology or "the theory of knowledge?" What is it really about? Why does it matter? What makes theorizing about knowledge "philosophical?" Why do some philosophers argue that epistemology--perhaps even philosophy itself--is dead? In this succinct, exciting, and original introduction to epistemology, Michael Williams explains and criticizes philosophical theories of the nature, limits, methods, possibility, and value of knowing. A coherent and progressive text, Problems of Knowledge covers both traditional and contemporary approaches to the subject, including foundationalism, the coherence theory, and "naturalistic" theories. As an alternative to these perspectives, Williams defends his own distinctive contextualist approach. Problems of Knowledge provides clear and engaging explanations of the theory of knowledge and why it matters, offering an excellent foundation for students in introductory epistemology courses.

Abstract

„Die Schwierigkeit ist, um darauf nochmals hinzuweisen, einen Gedanken zu denken, der den Funktionen der neuronalen Vorgänge tatsächlich gerecht wird, nämlich dass die neuronale Aktivität der neuronalen Areale unser bewusstes Sehen realisiert bzw. ist, ohne dass das Sehen dort wäre oder wir dort im Kopf etwas sähen oder Neuronen dort etwas repräsentierten. Denn das Sehen ist eine Relation, und das Gesehene ist dort, wo wir es mit den Augen sehen.“ Die 2008 erstmals erschienene Studie gibt sowohl einen grundsätzlichen Einblick in die neurophysiologischen Grundlagen des Sehens als auch und vor allem eine differenzierte Diskussion und Kritik neurowissenschaftlicher bzw. -psychologischer Theorien der visuellen Wahrnehmung. Es werden deren philosophische Wurzeln und mit diesen verbundene Probleme und mereologische Fehler aufgezeigt. Schließlich werden Grundlagen zu einer handlungsorientierten Auffassung der visuellen Wahrnehmung (unter Berücksichtigung emotionaler Bewertungen) dargelegt. Die in Grundzügen entwickelte Position weist Parallelen zu John R. Searles („Seeing things as they are“) entwickelten Wahrnehmungstheorie auf, was den grundsätzlichen Charakter der Studie zum Ausdruck bringt und ihre Wiederauflage rechtfertigt.

Abstract

The role of testimony in the getting of reliable belief or knowledge is a central but neglected epistemological issue. In this work of original philosophy, Professor Coady explores the nature of testimony and the philosophical debates about it, in order to show how it might be defended as a source of knowledge.

Abstract

This book explores central scenes and conceptual elaborations of what historically has been called "the problem" or "the problematic". The chapters contextualize the (re-)arising of this notion within the history of power and knowledge since the late 19th century, leading up to today's neocybernetic fascination with control and generalized management ideas which form a constitutive part of the power/knowledge complex of Environmentality. By way of considering modes of problematization as modes of inhabitation, the volume maps its current conceptual-political uses as well as onto-epistemological challenges. Thus, »problematization« is positioned as a critical concept.

Abstract

The author of the highly popular book Think, which Time magazine hailed as "the one book every smart person should read to understand, and even enjoy, the key questions of philosophy," Simon Blackburn is that rara avis-an eminent thinker who is able to explain philosophy to the general reader. Now Blackburn offers a tour de force exploration of what he calls "the most exciting and engaging issue in the whole of philosophy"-the age-old war over truth. The front lines of this war are well defined. On one side are those who believe in plain, unvarnished facts, rock-solid truths that can be found through reason and objectivity-that science leads to truth, for instance. Their opponents mock this idea. They see the dark forces of language, culture, power, gender, class, ideology and desire-all subverting our perceptions of the world, and clouding our judgement with false notions of absolute truth. Beginning with an early skirmish in the war-when Socrates confronted the sophists in ancient Athens-Blackburn offers a penetrating look at the longstanding battle these two groups have waged, examining the philosophical battles fought by Plato, Protagoras, William James, David Hume, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Richard Rorty, and many others, with a particularly fascinating look at Nietzsche. Among the questions Blackburn considers are: is science mere opinion, can historians understand another historical period, and indeed can one culture ever truly understand another. Blackburn concludes that both sides have merit, and that neither has exclusive ownership of truth. What is important is that, whichever side we embrace, we should know where we stand and what is to be said for our opponents.
