Socializing Epistemology: The Social Dimensions of Knowledge

Portada
Frederick F. Schmitt
Rowman & Littlefield, 1994 - 315 páginas
In this wide-ranging collection of never before published essays, distinguished scholars in the fields of philosophy and economics examine such questions as whether testimony is a basic source of knowledge, the degree to which notions of a good argument are determined by speakers and their audiences, the role of individual biases in the development of science, and the social aspects of group belief and group justification. The collection ends with the first comprehensive bibliography of social epistemology.
