Epistemology: Bolinda Beginner Guides | [Robert M. Martin]

Epistemology: Bolinda Beginner Guides

Epistemology is the philosophical study of knowledge. Without knowledge, scientific enquiry is meaningless and we can't analyse the world around us. But what exactly is knowledge and how do we obtain it? Should we trust our senses? When is belief knowledge? Presuming no prior experience, Robert Martin covers everything in the topic from scepticism and induction to Kant's transcendentalism. Clear and readable, this audiobook is essential for philosophy students and a much needed introduction for the general reader.

Audible Editor Reviews

At the heart of philosophy is epistemology, the study of knowledge. This introductory guide created by Dalhouse University Professor of Philosophy Robert M. Martin gently leads listeners into this rich field of philosophical enquiry. Featuring a charismatic and clear narration from Richard Aspel, this audiobook provides easy-to-understand examples that encourage the audience to think creatively and critically about epistemology, while leaving room for listeners to make their own decisions about the field. Ranging from skepticism to Kant's transcendentalism, this guide is at once thorough and accessible.

    "Don't know where this is taking me"
    What would have made Epistemology: Bolinda Beginner Guides better?

    This book starts from considering how we know things and moves on from there. I am interesting in learning from an educational perspective and this is definitely more of a general book. If I had a paper copy I would be flicking through to see the structure of the book - where it is taking me - but this is not possible with the audio book. I am being led through to I don't know where and this is rather frustrating. Don't know if I will actually finish it.


    Has Epistemology: Bolinda Beginner Guides put you off other books in this genre?

    It has put me off trying anything 'heavy' in audio format.


    What didn’t you like about Richard Aspel’s performance?

    His delivery is just rather annoying although it is clear.


    Any additional comments?

    Wanted to really like it.

    Story
    "Going to hear it again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, is an excellent introduction to the subject of epistemology.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Epistemology: Bolinda Beginner Guides?

    The belief on the external world remains so, a belief. Cannot be proven, has simply to be accepted. Also the exposition about defeaters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The exposition of Rationalism. Analytic and synthetic knowledge.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Do we really know anything?


    Any additional comments?

    It is a begginer guide, but pay close attention to it. As much as the narration is clear and concise is not an easy subject. I am surprised the book has so few reviews and ratings, so I felt obliged to do mine. I am hearing it again, it is a good and beneficial guide.
