Evidence and Inquiry: Towards Reconstruction in Epistemology

During this very important new paintings, Haack develops an unique idea of empirical facts or justification, and argues its appropriateness to the ambitions of inquiry. In so doing, Haack presents targeted severe case experiences of Lewis's foundationalism; Davidson's and Bonjour's coherentism; Popper's 'epistemology with no realizing subject'; Quine's naturalism; Goldman's reliabilism; and Rorty's, Stich's, and the Churchlands' contemporary obituaries of epistemology.

Likeness to Truth

The idea that of likeness to fact, like that of fact itself, is prime to a realist notion of inquiry. to illustrate this we want purely make particularly modest target of an inquiry, as an inquiry, is realist assumptions: the reality doctrine (that the the reality of a few topic) and the growth doctrine (that one fake idea may well appreciate this target higher than another).

Incorporating this truth is the only way to attain health. Finally, I argue that Nietzsche gives an ontological status to this health. For him, becoming healthy means becoming oneself, and becoming oneself means being at one with Being. In Chapter , however, I investigate why Nietzsche believes that such a total unification of the self turns out to be impossible.

If this torsion is achieved, the individual will believe in the imaginary world more than she believes in the empirical world and give up her empirical claims to the benefit of her newfound imaginary ones; she will become moral. ” If threats succeed in making us favor the imaginary realm over the empirical one, it will become possible to have faith without experience—in Nietzsche’s words, ascetic faith. This is the phenomenon described in GM, II, : the individual renounces her claim to discharge her power outward in a bid to avoid the promised retribution.

At this point, the word becomes a concept and the experience is generalized: Every word instantly becomes a concept precisely insofar as it is not supposed to serve as a reminder of the unique and entirely individual original [. ]. Every concept arises from the equation of unequal things. (PT, ) The consequence of this process is that the experience becomes objectified. This objectification is expressed in HATH, I, , as “sublimation” and in a note from March-June , Nietzsche uses the concept of sublimation in the same sense, with reference to values: “sublimation,” he now writes, “has torn judgments from their conditionality in which they have grown and alone possess any meaning,” and, thereby, they become “denaturalized” (WP, ).
