Ignorance and Imagination

Daniel Stoljar

Oxford University Press

The next three chapters turn from E1 to E2, and discuss the case for believing the ignorance hypothesis in the first place. This chapter starts by emphasizing our ignorance in general, our ignorance of experience in particular, the way in which the assumption of ignorance explains a philosophical predicament that otherwise remains elusive, and the way in which the ignorance hypothesis is suggested by the basic structure of the logical problem. The epistemic view is also compared and contrasted with McGinn’s mysterianism.

Keywords:   mysterianism, empirical ignorance, logic, experience
