About this product
- DescriptionQuestions of belief, and agency over personal belief, abound as individuals claim to have the right to believe whatever they so choose. In a carefully constructed argument, Bruce Reichenbach contends that while individuals have direct control over belief, they are obligated to believe--and purposely seek--the truth. Though the nature of truth and belief is an oft-debated topic, Reichenbach moves beyond surface-level persuasions to address the very core of what constitutes a human right. These epistemic obligations are critical, as the influence of belief is evident throughout society, from law and education to religion and daily decision-making. Grounding his argument in practical case studies, Reichenbach deftly demonstrates the necessity of moral accountability and belief.
- Author BiographyBruce Reichenbach is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Augsburg College. He is the author of several books, including On Behalf of God: A Christian Ethic for Biology and The Law of Karma: A Philosophical Study . He lives in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota area.
