Epistemology is the philosophical study of knowledge. Without knowledge, scientific enquiry is meaningless and we can’t analyse the world around us. But what exactly is knowledge and how do we obtain it? Should we trust our senses? When is belief knowledge?
Presuming no prior experience of philosophy, Robert Martin covers everything in the topic from scepticism and induction to Kant’s transcendentalism. Clear and readable, this audiobook is essential for philosophy students and a much needed introduction to the topic for the general reader.
At the heart of philosophy is epistemology, the study of knowledge. This introductory guide created by Dalhouse University Professor of Philosophy Robert M. Martin gently leads listeners into this rich field of philosophical enquiry. Featuring a charismatic and clear narration from Richard Aspel, this audiobook provides easy-to-understand examples that encourage the audience to think creatively and critically about epistemology, while leaving room for listeners to make their own decisions about the field. Ranging from skepticism to Kant's transcendentalism, this guide is at once thorough and accessible.

Well structured, very broad, sometimes confusing

Don't know where this is taking me
This book starts from considering how we know things and moves on from there. I am interesting in learning from an educational perspective and this is definitely more of a general book. If I had a paper copy I would be flicking through to see the structure of the book - where it is taking me - but this is not possible with the audio book. I am being led through to I don't know where and this is rather frustrating. Don't know if I will actually finish it.
It has put me off trying anything 'heavy' in audio format.
His delivery is just rather annoying although it is clear.
Wanted to really like it.
