Perception, Knowledge and Belief

Selected Essays

Perception, Knowledge and Belief

This collection of essays by eminent philosopher Fred Dretske brings together work on the theory of knowledge and philosophy of mind spanning thirty years. The two areas combine to lay the groundwork for a naturalistic philosophy of mind. The essays focus on perception, knowledge, and consciousness. Together, they show the interconnectedness of Dretske's work in epistemology and his more contemporary ideas on philosophy of mind, shedding light on the links that can be made between the two. This collection will be a valuable resource for a wide range of philosophers and their students, and will also be of interest to cognitive scientists, psychologists, and philosophers of biology.


 Reviews:

'These essays are models of good philosophical writing. they are intricately argued, without ever being tortuous, profound yet without a hint of affectation, and boldly programmatic, while displaying care over details. Above all they are durable contributions to the subject.' Mind
