The Nature and Value of Knowledge: Three Investigations

Duncan Pritchard, Alan Millar, Adrian Haddock

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

"'The culmination of long collaboration, this tryptich combines the latest by three outstanding contributors. The outcome is three illuminating panels on knowledge, its nature and value, and in one case more specifically on self-knowledge. Anyone with an interest in these topics will want to read this book, and others who read it are likely soon to acquire an interest.'-Ernest Sosa, Board of Governors Professor of Philosophy, Rutgers University" "'Pritchard's discussion of the nature and value of knowledge is first-rate. His framing of the various problems around the value of knowledge significantly advances current discussion of the relevant issues, to the point that, in my opinion, it is far and away the best available. Millar's discussion of the epistemology of testimony draws from his earlier work on understanding language and action, and is also neatly integrated into his accounts of perceptual knowledge and indicator knowledge in earlier chapters. This discussion is also very interesting. His arguments against reductionism, and his own anti-reductionist approach, are original and compelling. Haddock's contribution is a very interesting discussion that merits attention.'-John Greco, Leonard and Elizabeth Eslick Chair in Philosophy, Saint Louis University"
