Review of Good Knowledge, Bad Knowledge (Hetherington, Oxford UP)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview (Book/Film/Exhibition/etc.)

Abstract

In this book, Stephen Hetherington attacks what he thinks are two "dogmas" of epistemology. One he calls "epistemic absolutism" which amounts to the claim that knowledge is absolute: you can be with or without it, but once you have it, it is not possible to have more or less. The other is "justificationalism" which is the view that some sort of (internalist of externalist) justification is necessary for knowledge.
