This work gives clear rigorous answers to the fundamental questions of epistemology, these being:
This book is appropriate for beginners and also for researchers.
©2016 John-Michael Kuczynski (P)2016 John-Michael Kuczynski
the best philosophy book, or book of any kind (at least on audible) that I have read/listened to in a long, long time
the rigor, combined with the flow
the discussion of self-knowledge
too long for that
yes, but when you hear it narrated, especially by this chap, the weight of kuczynski's wisdom really sinks in
the discussion of self-knowledge, and the discussion of how all theoretical knowledge is inferential but not the way other arond
a depth and magisterial slowness that forces you to take in what is being said, and gives you the time to do so
skip college read this book

"The ultimate philosophy book"
Probably something by Hume, because it is clear and logical.
His deep voice, a relaxed yet focused quality. Very rich and nuanced voice; is sensitive to the fault-lines in this richly articulated material.
If Alex Baldwin were smart, this is what he would say.
This books puts other philosophy books to shame. Bravo.
"worth more than four years of philosophy classes"
I majored in philosophy. This book says more than my professors could over the course of six years (four years undergrad, two in a masters program)
Kuczynski's material moves very fast. Randy Whitlow brings a calm wisdom that offsets Kuczynski's nervous energy.
The material on information-transmission re: the Gettier problem was beyond good.
Presumably the author is well known. But the cover designs on his books look something an eight year old does. Who does his marketing?
"the book for serious philosophers"
yes, in that it made me really take in each sentence. also, there is a subtly lyrical quality, almost poetic, metered quality to it, which one has to hear it to appreciate.
the discussion of the paradox of analysis. it was brilliant, made me realize how incompetent my professors in college were.
yes, impressed by its authoritativeness
if you are a thinker, get it. if you want fluff don't.
"a hammerblow of a book"
yes, author solves gettier problem
this was a treatise, not a work of fiction
almost, but had to take a break
discussion of counterfactual knowledge utterly, utterly cogent
knowledge about knowledge
the discussion of scientific justification and proof
a measured quality, slow and steady
i like the part where newton was being discussed.
best book i've read in a long time
two or three
the discussion of the unconscious
the country quality of it, which contrasted with k's erudition
impressed, took work to get through, though because hard
damned good stuff
"Best book I've read"
the main one, he was smart
this is my first encounter with randy whitlow
almost, but I had to pause to consider the things the author was saying
great book, great narrator
"a real accomplishment"
Yes, a commanding performance of a major work.
Some book by Russell or Hume
There were no characters, but there were no narrative elements
Yes, in awe of it
Be prepared to think!
"a beautiful and haunting work"
in defense of pure reason, by laurence of bonjour, because of its stature
the analysis of logical analysis
the discussion of our knowledge of scientific laws
the discussion of the justification vs causation of belief was particularly cogent
"better than four years of college"
the intelligence and clarity
the discussion of knowledge of hypothetical truths
epistemology the untold story
