Old paper on Haack is up on the web

Posted on August 7, 2008


It seems that an old paper of mine that I wrote on Susan Haack’s Evidence and Inquiry is now available on the web. The article concerns her attempt in that book to show how experience can play a role in how we form an accurate description of the world, this being a problem for analytical philosophers who wish to understand epistemology in terms of propositional attitudes. I thought it was the weakest part of her book and since writing the paper have had a chance to talk to her about it enough to find out that she pretty much agrees and has substantially changed her position on this in later publications. In other words, this paper is pretty much out of date.
