This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the knowability paradox and how the knowability principle has been claimed for a number of historic non-realisms, including Michael Dummett's semantic anti-realism, Hilary Putnam's internal realism, the logical positivisms of the Berlin and Vienna Circles, Peirce's pragmatism, Kant's transcendental idealism, and Berkeley's metaphysical idealism. Fitch's generalization of the knowability result is presented followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.
