Theory of Knowledge
PHIL 294
Fall 2009 not offered

This course is divided into four sections: knowledge of the world around us; self-knowledge; our knowledge of others; our knowledge from others, or testimony-based knowledge. We will focus on the problems that arise in trying to give a philosophical account of the possibility of knowledge in each of these areas. Topics to be considered include skepticism, subjectivism and objectivity, transcendental arguments, the scheme-content distinction, the naturalization of epistemology, the place of intersubjecivity in knowledge, and whether there is such a thing as practical, as distinct from theoretical, knowledge.
