    Naturalistic Epistemology: a Symposium of Two Decades. [Abner Shimony; Debra Nails] -- 1. AIMS OF THE INTRODUCTION The systematic assessment of claims to . Notes to Naturalism in Epistemology. 1. As Elisabeth Pacherie puts it: “one should not take the label ‘naturalistic epistemology’ to be referring to a single, well-defined, doctrine. Rather, this label functions as an umbrella term covering a set of approaches that question in more or less radical ways the tenets of classical epistemology.

    This volume draws together influential work by Hilary Kornblith on naturalistic epistemology. This approach sees epistemology not as conceptual analysis, but as an explanatory project constrained and informed by work in cognitive science. These essays expound and defend Kornblith's distinctive view of how we come to have knowledge of the world. Throughout philosophical history, there has been a recurring argument to the effect that determinism, naturalism, or both are self-referentially incoherent. By accepting determinism or naturalism, one allegedly acquires a reason to reject determinism or naturalism. The Epistemological Skyhook brings together, for the first time, the principal expressions of this argument, focusing primarily on.

    Abstract. With his book The Nature of Mathematical Knowledge (), Ph. Kitcher, that had been doing extensive research in the history of the subject and in the contemporary debates on epistemology, saw clearly the need for a change in philosophy of mathematics. Naturalistic account of inductive inference [ edit ] In his book Inductive Inference and Its Natural Ground (MIT Press, ) Kornblith argues that inductive knowledge is possible by virtue of a fit between our innate psychological capacities and the causal structure of the world.

AIMS OF THE INTRODUCTION The systematic assessment of claims to knowledge is the central task of epistemology. According to naturalistic epistemologists, this task cannot be well performed unless proper attention is paid to the place of the knowing subject in nature. Definition.

Within philosophy, knowledge is generally associated with justified true beliefs. While defining knowledge as justified true belief is problematic, the association of knowledge with beliefs and their justification has led naturalistic epistemologists.

What is clearly the central theme of the book is the issue between naturalistic and normative approaches to space perception (in particular) and to epistemology (in general).
