Editorial Reviews


"Content and Justification is a wonderful collection that brings together fourteen of the more important essays Paul Boghossian has written over the past twenty years.... many of the essays contained in this volume have been incredibly influential and as each one of them repays careful study it is not hard to recommend this volume to philosophers interested in epistemology and the philosophy of mind or language.... the essays contained in this volume are all excellent, the older essays provide an excellent gateway into debates concerning thought content and self-knowledge, and the newer essays will surely generate literatures of their own in the near future."--Clayton Littlejohn, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An essential antidote for the social construction of knowledge aka everyhing is relative crowd. Scientists and serious analytic philosphers agree, that although we may only be able to model reality, that reality exists and that reason is an indispensable tool to both ontological and ethical systems. Everyone's opinions are not equally valid - some are rational and some are not ie some are valid and some are not. By demonstrating the limits of social construction he provides the tools to demolish cultural relatvism so rampant in the social sciences.
