How do we know? On the nature of knowledge and beliefs By R.W. van der Pol
eBook (PDF): $33.46
Download immediately.
It is generally accepted that sound decision making relies on knowledge. This may seem easy enough, but it appears that knowledge used in decisions comprises beliefs, and... we cannot easily tell... More > whether a belief is true. This book is meant to help you improve your decision-making skills, by exploring how we know - in two ways. First, the nature of beliefs is clarified, by studying beliefs and their context of human brains and thinking. Second, the ways of obtaining beliefs and their consequences for the truth and reliability of beliefs are studied: observation, communication, conception, memorization and reasoning. Especially reasoning is studied into its details. We base our insights on observations of real reasoning, instead of formal logic only. The book serves both as a theoretical guide and a practical aid, with examples that will help you in making better judgments about the reliability of your beliefs. As a result, you will recognize poor decisions and/or make better ones.< Less
