Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Being Known is a response to a philosophical challenge which arises for every area of thought: to reconcile a plausible account of what is involved in the truth of statements in a given area with a credible account of how we can know those statements. Christopher Peacocke presents a framework for addressing the challenge, a framework which links both the theory of knowledge and the theory of truth with the theory of concept-possession.

Christopher Peacocke, FBA, is Waynflete Professor of Metaphysical Philosophy at the University of Oxford, and Visiting Professor of Philosophy at New York University. He is one of the General Editors of the Oxford Cognitive Science Series.
