Product Description


This book is deep and genuinely interesting...this is a book that deserves respect and applause. Alessandro Capone Needless to say, I find Stanley's book extremely important and powerfully argued. I recommend it highly, not only to those interested in recent debates over the semantics of knowledge attributions, for whom it is absolutely essential, but also to anyone with a healthy interest in what knowledge is - and indeed to anybody who enjoys well-executed, insightful philosophy books Keith DeRose, Mind Jason Stanleys Knowledge and Practical Interests is a brilliant book, combining insights about knowledge with a careful examination of how recent views in epistemology fit with the best of recent linguistic semantics. Gilbert Harman, Princeton University Stanley's book ... is a model of clarity and showcases one of philosophy's brightest young things at his best ... a great, wide-ranging, must-read book ... This is a book that is rich with insight and argument and which has a broad philosophical reach. These features of the book by themselves ensure that it is essential reading. Duncan Pritchard, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Knowledge and Practical Interests Jan. 7 2008
By rodrigo - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Certainly among the most important works in contemporary epistemology recently, 'Knowledge and Practical Interests' contains the best arguments available against contextualism and also one of the most exciting original approaches to epistemology: subject sensitive invariantism. Obligatory reading for anyone interested in contemporary epistemology.

Pragmatic Epistemology Jan. 5 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Stanley is a young but extraordinary philosopher. If epistemology is your interest, then this book is on the cutting edge of the topic. Stanley links our needs and perhaps our desires with what we consider to be knowledge. He does it well, with each chapter breaking down his argument and offering up alternative theories. At some points, the book becomes a bit tedious, but in dealing with theories of knowledge, that is understandable. If pragmatism plays into your philosophy of life, then Stanley is your man.
