Publisher's Summary

It is made clear what discursive knowledge is and how we acquire it, and some age-old skeptical views are shown to be incoherent. It is shown that all knowledge is to some degree inferential. At the same time, it is shown that there are three quite distinct senses in which empirical knowledge can be inferential. It is proved that we have a priori knowledge, and also that knowledge of non-empirical truths is needed to acquire empirical knowledge. Finally, it is clearly explained what prediction is, what explanation is, how the two differ, and how they are similar.

    Story
    "Great book, wretched narration job"
    If you could sum up Outline of a Theory of Knowledge in three words, what would they be?

    Skepticism finally refuted.


    What other book might you compare Outline of a Theory of Knowledge to and why?

    An Outline of Philosophy, by Bertrand Russell; similarly brisk and authoritative.


    What didn’t you like about Lori L. Parker’s performance?

    She doesn't understand the material; she reads typos without changing them, even though it's obvious how to change them; and she makes spittle sounds all the time; no respect for the material, no understanding of it; did not edit.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That explanation is continuity-restoration and that, given this veritable tautology, all of the usual skepticism is so much tom-foolery.


    Any additional comments?

    Content good; recording not acceptable.
