About this product
- DescriptionThe theory of kwledge, or epistemology, is often regarded as a dry topic that bears little relation to actual kwledge practices. Kwledge: The Philosophical Quest in History addresses this perception by showing the roots, developments and prospects of modern epistemology from its beginnings in the nineteenth century to the present day. Beginning with an introduction to the central questions and problems in theory of kwledge, Steve Fuller goes on to demonstrate that contemporary epistemology is enriched by its interdisciplinarity, analysing keys areas including: * Epistemology as Cognitive Ecomics * Epistemology as Divine Psychology * Epistemology as Philosophy of Science * Epistemology as Sociology of Science * Epistemology and Postmodernism. A wide-ranging and historically-informed assessment of the ways in which man has - and continues to - pursue, question, contest, expand and shape kwledge, this book is essential reading anyone in the Humanities and Social Sciences interested in the history and practical application of epistemology.
