How does scientific knowledge differ from non-scientific knowledge?

What is the nature of our knowledge of the past, the future, the merely possible, and the present but not perceptible?
How is conceptual knowledge different from empirical knowledge?
Is all knowledge inferential?
Is all knowledge theoretical?
Is all inferential knowledge theoretical?
Is the mind transparent to itself?
Is the concept of unconscious ideation a coherent one?
What is the Gettier problem and what is the solution to the Gettier problem?

Most Helpful

worth more than four years of philosophy classes

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I majored in philosophy. This book says more than my professors could over the course of six years (four years undergrad, two in a masters program)

Who was your favorite character and why?


What does Randy Whitlow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kuczynski's material moves very fast. Randy Whitlow brings a calm wisdom that offsets Kuczynski's nervous energy.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

The material on information-transmission re: the Gettier problem was beyond good.

Any additional comments?

Presumably the author is well known. But the cover designs on his books look something an eight year old does. Who does his marketing?

The ultimate philosophy book

Where does Epistemology rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Number 1

What other book might you compare Epistemology to and why?

Probably something by Hume, because it is clear and logical.

What about Randy Whitlow’s performance did you like?

His deep voice, a relaxed yet focused quality. Very rich and nuanced voice; is sensitive to the fault-lines in this richly articulated material.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

If Alex Baldwin were smart, this is what he would say.

Any additional comments?

This books puts other philosophy books to shame. Bravo.
