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?
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?
This book is appropriate for beginners and also for researchers.

worth more than four years of philosophy classes
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)
Kuczynski's material moves very fast. Randy Whitlow brings a calm wisdom that offsets Kuczynski's nervous energy.
The material on information-transmission re: the Gettier problem was beyond good.
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
Probably something by Hume, because it is clear and logical.
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 Alex Baldwin were smart, this is what he would say.
This books puts other philosophy books to shame. Bravo.
