Good Knowledge, Bad Knowledge: On Two Dogmas of Epistemology

Stephen Hetherington

Abstract

Philosophers have long inquired into the nature and even the possibility of human knowledge. This book identifies two mistaken assumptions that have fundamentally shaped that tradition of philosophical thought. Correcting those assumptions results in a unique theory of knowledge — one that conceives of it in a rigorous yet non-absolutist way. This theory offers new solutions to many venerable philosophical puzzles.

Keywords: human knowledge, philosophy, philosophical puzzles, assumptions, theory of knowledge, absolutism
