Avsnitt 11: Reid (del 2): Filosofisk metod och social epistemologi

February 15, 2015

reid.pngI det här avsnittet fortsätter vi vår diskussion av Thomas Reids mästerverk An inquiry into the human mind, on the principles of common sense från 1764.

Vi diskuterar han kritik av Descartes och Humes metod samt hans social epistemologiska teori.

”The evidence of sense, the evidence of memory, and the evidence of the necessary relations of things, are all distinct and original kind of evidence, equally grounded on our constitution: none of them depends upon, or can be resolved into another. To reason against any of these kind of evidence, is absurd; nay, to reason for them, is absurd. They are first principles; and such fall not within the province of Reason but of Common Sense”
