About this product
- DescriptionThe realities of mankind's cognitive situation are such that our kwledge of the world's ways is bound to be imperfect. None the less, the theory of unkwability-agseology as some have called it-is a rather underdeveloped branch of philosophy. In this philosophically rich and groundbreaking work, Nicholas Rescher aims to remedy this. As the heart of the discussion is an examination of what Rescher identifies as the four prime reasons for the impracticability of cognitive access to certain facts about the world: developmental inpredictability, verificational surdity, ontological detail, and predicative vagrancy. Rescher provides a detailed and illuminating account of the role of each of these factors in limiting human kwledge, giving us an overall picture of the practical and theoretical limits to our capacity to kw our world.
