Book Description

Making Sense of the World; (PDF) provides original work on the nature of understanding by a range of distinguished philosophers. However; some of the essays are by scholars well known for their work on understanding; many of the essays bring entirely new figures to the discussion.

The important purpose of the volume is twofold: to improve debates in epistemology and the philosophy of science; where work on understanding has currently flourished; and to jumpstart new questions and debates about understanding in other areas of philosophy; like aesthetics; ethics; and the philosophy of religion.

NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Making Sense of the World in PDF. No access codes are included.
