to epistemology, and via Anthony Quinton as "at as soon as entire … and judicious," facts and Inquiry is exclusive either in its scope and in its originality. C. I. Lewis’s foundationalism, BonJour’s and Davidson’s coherentism, Popper’s severe rationalism, Quine’s naturalism, and Rorty’s, Stich’s, and Churchland’s anti-epistemological neopragmatism all come lower than Haack’s uniquely thorough serious scrutiny. middle epistemological questions about the character of trust, the nature and constitution of proof, the determinants of evidential caliber, the relation of justification, chance, and fact, between others, are given refreshingly novel, and average, answers.

This new, improved edition—with a considerable new foreword and a number of other extra papers on subject matters starting from feminist epistemology to Peirce’s critique of the hostile felony process and Bentham’s critique of exclusionary ideas of evidence—should allure longtime readers and rookies alike.
