About this product
- DescriptionConfronting the scientific revolution's dismissal of Aristotle's physics and epistemology, Nathan R. Colaner revives this foundational philosopher's work to expose within it the underpinnings of modern philosophers' most common intuitions about kwledge. After Aristotle's picture of reality had been judged obsolete by the physics of the scientific revolution, modern Western epistemologists fumbled along with doctrines that had little to do with everyday life. These included Descartes' tion of the evil genius, Hume's claim that we can't kw anything that we are t presently observing, and Kant's rescue of kwledge in the context of idealism. In Aristotle on Kwledge of Nature and Modern Skepticism, Colaner articulates a tion of kwledge that is characteristically Aristotelian without being dependent on his metaphysics. Simultaneously, Colaner places Aristotle in dialogue with modern thinkers to create a bridge between classical and modern philosophy and reinstate Aristotle's prominence in the discipline of epistemology.
