Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Goldman rejects the common separation of epistemology from psychology and denies that logic, probability theory, and conceptual analysis suffice for analyzing rationality or justified belief. He asserts, rather, that cognitive science's understanding of the human brain-mind relationship must be taken into account, for upon its analysis of our cognitive capacities and how we form beliefs and solve problems, we partly base our standards of rational justification. The book is concerned with the knowing subject as distinguished from the social institutions that impinge upon his beliefs and their formation. Goldman examines a wide variety of topics in both traditional epistemology and cognitive science and discusses the work of major philosophers. His clearly written and carefully argued work belongs in every large philosophy collection. Robert Hoffman, Phi los o phy Dept., York Coll., CUNY

Goldman is one of our leading epistemologists, known for his subtle and eloquent defense of the past decade's reigning epistemology, reliabilism. He is the source of many of the rich concepts and distinctions that have set the terms of current discussion and furnished epistemology with its current high degree of rigor and sophistication. Epistemology and Cognition is his masterwork, expounding all his fundamental ideas. (William G. Lycan)

Very impressive. I myself have been awaiting Alvin Goldman's book for some time, and I think many others have been too. It's even more interesting than I had anticipated. Although many philosophers nowadays pay lip service to the idea that there is an overlap between psychology and philosophy, this book is unique both in its detailed attempt to spell out the theoretical framework behind this idea and in the depth and breadth of its account of relevant work in cognitive science. I believe it will have significant impact. (Gilbert Harman)
