About this product
- DescriptionHilary Kornblith presents a new account of reflection, and its importance for kwledge, reasoning, freedom, and rmativity. Philosophers have frequently extolled the value of reflective self-examination, and a wide range of philosophers, who differ on many other things, have argued that reflection can help to solve a number of significant philosophical problems. The importance of reflecting on one's beliefs and desires has been viewed as the key to solving problems about justification and kwledge; about reasoning; about the nature of freedom; and about the source of rmativity. In each case, a problem is identified which reflective self-examination is thought to address. Kornblith argues that reflection cant solve any of these problems. There is a common structure to these issues, and the problems which reflection is thought to resolve are ones which could t possibly be solved by reflecting on one's beliefs and desires. More than this, he suggests that the attempt to solve these problems by appealing to reflection saddles us with a mystical view of the powers of reflective self-examination. Recognition of this fact motivates a search for a demystified view of the nature of reflection. To this end, Kornblith offers a detailed examination of views about kwledge, reasoning, freedom, and rmativity in order to better understand the motivations for extolling self-reflective examination. He explores both the logic of these views, and the psychological commitments they involve. In the final chapter, he offers a more realistic view of reflection, which draws on dual process approaches to cognition.
