Beschreibung von Audible
At the heart of philosophy is epistemology, the study of knowledge. This introductory guide created by Dalhouse University Professor of Philosophy Robert M. Martin gently leads listeners into this rich field of philosophical enquiry. Featuring a charismatic and clear narration from Richard Aspel, this audiobook provides easy-to-understand examples that encourage the audience to think creatively and critically about epistemology, while leaving room for listeners to make their own decisions about the field. Ranging from skepticism to Kant's transcendentalism, this guide is at once thorough and accessible.
Epistemology is the philosophical study of knowledge. Without knowledge, scientific enquiry is meaningless and we can’t analyse the world around us. But what exactly is knowledge and how do we obtain it? Should we trust our senses? When is belief knowledge?
Presuming no prior experience of philosophy, Robert Martin covers everything in the topic from scepticism and induction to Kant’s transcendentalism. Clear and readable, this audiobook is essential for philosophy students and a much needed introduction to the topic for the general reader.
