How does intuitive knowledge differ from discursive knowledge? How does scientific knowledge differ from non-scientific knowledge? What is the difference between discovery and justification? And much more.

    According to David Hume, the concept of causation and probability are to be understood in terms of the concepts of similarity and repetition. In this book, it is shown that they are to be understood in terms of the concept of continuity. One corollary is that there is no legitimate basis for skepticism concerning the legitimacy of inductive inference. Another is that anti-realism about theoretical entities is misconceived.

    Even though the world is governed by laws, human beings are able to be free. In fact, there is no difference between being genuinely free and having a distinctively human psychological architecture. But self-deception and rationalization can result in the replacement of actual beliefs with operational pseudo-beliefs. When this happens, the result is a sociopathic pseudo-person.

    The grounds for inductive inference, and therewith for all forms epistemic realism, are identified. Skepticism concerning induction is shown to be incompatible with the datum that our experiences are temporally collocated and otherwise cohesive. Skepticism concerning the veridicality of our senses is shown to fail for the same reason.

    In this work, Descartes' metaphysics and epistemology are clearly stated and assiduously analyzed. It is shown that Descartes' epistemic foundationalism is tenable, and that his mind-body dualism is correct if taken to concern the relationship of mentalistic (mind-related) data to physicalistic data, even though it is incorrect if taken to concern the relationship of mind per se to body per se. Descartes' analysis of causation is shown to be correct, notwithstanding the copious criticism to which centuries have subjected it.

    People who are hyper-aware of other people's thoughts and feelings, sometimes isolate themselves to avoid being flooded with information about other people's psyches, making it seem as though they lack empathy, when in actuality, they have a super-abundance of it.

    W.V.O. tried to prove that no statement is necessarily true. In this work, Quine's argument is stated, analyzed, and shown to be a broken argument for a false conclusion. It is shown that necessary truths are as important as empirical truths to the empirical sciences, the reason being that, without necessary truths, there is no way to organize or interpret data. It comes to light that, in addition to being false, every form of extreme empiricism is so incoherent that it cannot be clearly stated without thereby being refuted.
