What to Believe Now: Applying Epistemology to Contemporary Issues

English | ISBN: 1405199946, 1405199938 | 2012 | 212 pages | PDF scan | 9 MB
What can we know and what should we believe about today′s world? applies the concerns and techniques of epistemology to a wide variety of contemporary issues. Questions about what we can know-and what we should believe-are first addressed through an explicit consideration of the practicalities of working these issues out at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
Coady calls for an ′applied turn′ in epistemology, a process he likens to the applied turn that transformed the study of ethics in the early 1970s. Subjects dealt with include:
Experts-how can we recognize them? And when should we trust them?
Rumors-should they ever be believed? And can they, in fact, be a source of knowledge?
Conspiracy theories-when, if ever, should they be believed, and can they be known to be true?
The blogosphere-how does it compare with traditional media as a source of knowledge and justified belief?
Timely, thought provoking, and controversial, What to Believe Now offers a wealth of insights into a branch of philosophy of growing importance-and increasing relevance-in the twenty-first century.
