Editorial Reviews


"An audacious thinker, a brilliant polemicist, an iconoclast ..." Publishers' Weekly

From the Back Cover

The Socratic, or dialog, form is central to the history of philosophy and has been the discipline's canonical genre ever since. Paul Feyerabend's Three Dialogues on Knowledge resurrects the form to provide an astonishingly flexible and invigorating analysis of epistemological, ethical and metaphysical problems. He uses literary strategies - of irony, voice and distance - to make profoundly philosophical points about the epistemic, existential and political aspects of common sense and scientific knowledge. He writes about ancient and modern relativism; the authority of science; the ignorance of scientists; the nature of being; and true and false enlightenment.

Throughout Three Dialogues on Knowledge is provocative, controversial and inspiring. It is, unlike most current philosophical writing, written for readers with a keen sense of what matters and why.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Haroon Ali Agha on January 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
It's such a great book, one of the greatest works in epistemology ever written, and it's so poorly done. I don't know what's up with the publishers. Feyerabend's books are usually quite aesthetic. Why would they bring out one of his best works in such poor quality, beats me. The font is untidy, the cover is cheap quality and the page looks bluish white. The type setting is also not good. (I had already read a photocopy version of it and it was so good, much better than even this book itself, perhaps taken for a different edition.) I liked this book so much that although I had already read it I wanted an original copy. But it doesn't look good at all. Publishers should really think about it. It's sub-standard.
