Paolo Parrini's volume collects eight independent essays covering a long period of studies from the 1970s to more recent years and now partially revised. The contributions inquire into some of the major themes concerning the theory of knowledge: Kant’s perspective; the main approaches to epistemology like conventionalism, holism, metaphysical realism and radical relativism; more general and meta-philosophical reflections on the risks deriving from both absolutism and nihilism. Parrini’s essays share the common purpose of outlining an alternative concept of truth and a consequent theory of knowledge able to reject both defeatist relativism and coercive foundationalism.

Abstract

Paolo Parrini's volume collects eight independent essays covering a long period of studies from the 1970s to more recent years and now partially revised. The contributions inquire into some of the major themes concerning the theory of knowledge: Kant’s perspective; the main approaches to epistemology like conventionalism, holism, metaphysical realism and radical relativism; more general and meta-philosophical reflections on the risks deriving from both absolutism and nihilism. Parrini’s essays share the common purpose of outlining an alternative concept of truth and a consequent theory of knowledge able to reject both defeatist relativism and coercive foundationalism.
