Publisher's Summary

This work gives clear rigorous answers to the fundamental questions of epistemology, these being:

What is knowledge?
How does declarative knowledge differ from procedural knowledge?
How does intuitive knowledge differ from discursive knowledge?
How does scientific knowledge differ from non-scientific knowledge?
What is the difference between discovery and justification?
What is the nature of our knowledge of the past, the future, the merely possible, and the present but not perceptible?
How is conceptual knowledge different from empirical knowledge?
Is all knowledge inferential?
Is all knowledge theoretical?
Is all inferential knowledge theoretical?
Is the mind transparent to itself?
Is the concept of unconscious ideation a coherent one?
What is the Gettier problem and what is the solution to the Gettier problem?

This book is appropriate for beginners and also for researchers.
