    This work gives clear rigorous answers to the fundamental questions of epistemology, these being: What is knowledge? How does declarative knowledge differ from procedural knowledge? 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.

    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.

    The argument for God's existence is here clearly stated and definitively refuted. The so-called "ontological argument" for the existence of God was first put forth explicitly by St. Anselm. There are different versions of this argument. We'll consider three, starting with Anselm's own.

    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.

    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.

    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.
